Mjoka is a language with a fairly simple phonology, simple grammar, and still needs a vocabulary. Feel free to add words to the Dictionary at the bottom, just read the phonotactical constraints first.

Phonology Edit

In Mjoka there are seven consonants: P, K, M, N, R, J, W and four vowels: A, O, E, É. Note that this is the Romanized alphabet of the language and does not represent every sound found in the language (i'm talking about the Schwa)


Bilabial Alveolar Palatal Velar Labial-Velar
Plosive   [p] p  [k] k
Nasal   [m] m    [n] n
Approximant     ​​​[ɹ] r     [j] j  [w] w


Front  Central  Back
Mid   [ɛ] e [eɪ] é     [ə] [oʊ] o
Open  [ɑ] a


  • Syllable structure is (C)(j,w)V(m,n,r)
  • The only consonant clusters that are allowed are mj, nj, pj, pw, kj, kw. A consonant cluster cannot end a word.
  • The vowels o, e, or cannot come before r : é is the only letter that can come before r.
  • Sentence structure always follows SVO

Grammar Edit


These are examples of how to form specific verb tenses.


Ex: " I walked" ---------> "I was walk"

Past ProgressiveEdit

Ex: "I was walking" ---------> "I was is walk"

Simple PresentEdit

Ex: "I walk" ---------> "I walk"

Present ProgressiveEdit

Ex: "I am walking" ---------> "I is is walk"


Ex: "I will walk" ---------> "I will walk"

Future ProgressiveEdit

Ex: "I will be walking" ---------> "I will is walk" ────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────

Articles the and ruleEdit

  • When you need to use the articles the or you always attach them to the end of the first preposition after the noun.
  • If there is no preposition after the noun you are adding the article to, you just put it after the noun making it a separate word.
  • Note: The underlined words correspond to one another.

Ex: When there is a preposition

"A cat will run" ---------> "cat will-a run"

Ex: When there is no preposition

"The dog will chase the cat" ---------> "dog will-the chase cat the" ────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────

Dependant and Independant ClausesEdit

  • Dependant Clauses are always formed differently than Independant Clauses. Dependant Clauses always go,  Like-Descriptor, Preposition, Subject.
  • Note: these examples contain Like-Descriptors which are explained below in Parts of Speech.


"I am rough" ---------> "gravel-like is I"

"The teacher will be fast" ---------> "cheetah-like will-the teacher"

Independant ClausesEdit

  • Independant Clauses are similar to a regular English sentence, only the words are mixed around for correct grammar


"The dog was chasing the cat" ---------> "dog was-the is chase cat the" ────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────

Parts of SpeechEdit

There are four parts of speech, Nouns, Verbs, Like-Descriptors, and Prepositions.


  • Like-Descriptors act as both adjectives and adverbs.
  • A Like-Descriptor is made up of a noun and the like particle. The like particle can be placed before or after the noun that is acting as an adjective
  • You may also have a number act as a Like-Descriptors to indicate how many times the verb was performed.
  • Note: The like particle and the noun do not become one word! 

Ex: For Dependant Clauses

"The ground is coarse" ---------> "sand-like is-the ground" or "like-sand is-the ground"

Ex: For Independant Clauses

"The cat was running slowly" ---------> "cat was-the is run tortoise-like" or "cat was-the is run like-tortoise"

Nouns Edit

  • The only restrictions on nouns are the phonotactic rules listed above.

Verbs Edit

  • There are also no restrictions on verbs.
  • Verbs are always in infinitve form no matter what. The meaning of the verb is only changed by certain prepositions.

Progressive tense VerbsEdit

  • In english you add -ing to the end of a verb to make it progressive but in Mjoka you just simply put is in front of the infinitive form of the verb.


"I was running" ---------> "I was is run"

"I am running" ---------> "I is is run"


  • Prepositions can only end with the letter m or any vowel so that someone may indicate the the the or article.
