Rohoveyanic is an Oltakaken Language of the Tulukulu Subgroup. With around 45 million speakers, it is the official language of the New Republic of Rohoveyan, and one of the many official languages of The World Trade Organization.
Rohoveyanic has similarities to many other Oltakaken languages even outside the Tulukulu because of its history. It is very similar to Kuluruk, another commonly spoken Oltakaken language that spreads even outside the nation of Rohoveyan. Rohoveyan's language was in part influenced by other languages in its area because of its journey to all of the large nation of Rohoveyan.
Around 1805, Snouter, now Rohoveyanic, explorers and settlers journeyed north and westward. Due to a bit of misunderstanding, they thought that those pigs and birds spoke Rohoveyanic as well, and learnt the language. This inadvertently spread the language all over the nation, and caused it to develop with other languages of those areas, making it almost a fusion language of the native Rohoveyanic peoples. However, the groundwork is still seen in its syntax and grammar.
Rohoveyanic has begun to spread with The Great Tech Race, and even before that. According to Konnôr Flacktingsberd, Rohoveyanic peoples have entered a diaspora, with majority populations in Protoclyad, Uket, Chirpistan, Piggania, Flokk, Porcalonos Islands, Vertonam, and Bechturon, and those populations are ever increasing.
It first developed in the Rohoveyan Civilization in eastern modern-day Rohoveyan from old Oltakaken tribes.
After The Great Tech Race and the later years of Konnôr Flacktingsberd's presidency, the Rohoveyanic peoples have seen a diaspora, primarily to the nations of Protoclyad, Uket, Chirpistan, Piggania, Flokk, Porcalonos Islands, Vertonam, and Bechturon. The diaspora is still going on, and the stats have shown Rohoveyan is actually having a population drop. Many citizens, especially those in the East, blame Flacktingsberd for this. They explain that he's running the country so poorly that everybody wants to move to other places, not just because he isn't the one running them, but also because he funds aid for them, although there is a hole in this theory since Rohoveyan doesn't have much diplomacy with Uket. However, this is very likely. Flacktingsberd explains that Rohoveyan is a rich place, and everybody has already gotten what they need, and corrupt places like Piggy Island and New Uket, or medically short places like Vertonam and Porcalonos Islands need some aid to go for them because they are just entering serious business in the real world. Many in Nouvelleterre de Porc say that this is outrageous. During the 2019 protests, a few said that those countries needn't exist, and Rohoveyan should be the greatest and best. (These types of people are concentrated in Nouvelleterre de Porc, the rest of Rohoveyan is great, you really should visit. There still is anti-Flacktingsberd vibes in the rest of Rohoveyan, but they don't have this kind of attitude)
The diaspora has made Rohoveyanic much more of a big language than before, even if 40,000,000 speakers wasn't considered "big" beforehand. There seems to be a good future ahead for the language.
This section will show you how to pronounce letters and letter combinations in Rohoveyanic, as well as use them in words and show how they should be stressed or pronounced in words.
Before its spread to Rohoveyan, Rohoveyanic used a different alphabet than the one known today. However, the language now uses common Latin Script, along with a few other symbols:
|Ð||ð||"th" sound in "then,"and "the"|
|Я||я||Consonant y sound|
|'||'||Indicates a small stop in speaking caused by the stopping of breath|
|-||-||Indicates a small stop in speaking just in general|
While you may be wondering why there are places like Quenekue and Halifax that have the letters "q" and "x" and they don't appear on this list. That's because they aren't Rohoveyanic words. Quenekue is Kolngonqwen, and Halifax is English.
There are 46 letters in the Rohoveyanic Alphabet and 2 sumul (Rohoveyanic word for "symbol" used just for the 2 sumuls "'" and "-." The entire Rohoveyanic Lettered Lexicon has 48 characters in it officially, and that's the statement used by the WTO about the Rohoveyanic language.

Rohoveyanic has word variation. This is now called "Neuter/Masculine/Feminine wording," however it was just general differentiation based on features in original Rohoveyanic. Many words are now "Neuter," but there are some masculine/feminine words still extant in the language.

Rohoveyanic has no articles, either. So, "The dog chases the cat" would be "Dog chases cat."
