Naobè is a constructed language intended as an IAL or for use within the scientific community.

History[]

Naobè originated as a retaliation to the English language's considerable inconsistencies, redundancies, and fallacies. Over the past four years it has undergone several redesigns and is now nearing the end of its development. This an ongoing project as not all components of the language are completed yet, so check back for any updates.

Basics[]

There are 43 characters in Naobè. Most of which have some near-English equivalent.
