Open a

There are no diphthongs; the semivowels /w/ and /j/ are used instead. Examples: /aw/ and /aj/

Phonotactics[]

The language is built upon syllables, so the phonotactic is a pattern between a consonant and vowel. The end of a word can be a consonant or vowel. There can never be clusters nor diphthongs because of this.

Writing System[]

The Tagalogs came to the island to discover more land. That time, it was a Spanish Colony, year 1720. They romanized their alphabet which would change the language's history. It was only a spoken language, but can be written down.One letter, one sound, no exceptions. Here is how they were romanized:

Grammar[]

Word Form[]

Words can be put in three forms: root(dare), verb(feta) and describing(hukud). To make the word a feta, add a "ta" as a suffix, but if there is a consonant at the end of the dare, add an "a" to the end and place the suffix. To make the word a hukud, put a "de" as a suffix. Add an "a" to the dare if the end of the dare is a consonant then put the suffix. The dare acts as a noun. Ex. Water: bapa' (dare: bapa')(feta: bapa'ta)(hukud: bapa'de)

Tenses[]

This language does not use tense. There are word indicators to know when it was/is/will be done. To make it past, add the word "dawpa". To make it present, add "kaga". And for the future, "kepa". Example: (bapa'ta)

Dawpa bapa'ta mu bapa'
