Kyomal (쿄말), often known non-natively as just "Kyo," is the official language of Dankuk and it's a member of the Gao-Indralan language family. It is also spoken by the Kyo peoples of Northern Dovani and Kazulia, as well as the Kyo diaspora in Sekowo.

While widely acknowledged as a member of the Central Gao-Indralan language family, there are still many disagreements about the origin of the Kyo language. Just like the Kyo people, the exact origins of the language are unknown and many aspects of its linguistics are very distinct from any other Gao-Indralan language.

Status Edit

Until the 2964 Dranian Seung Revolution, the Kyo language had not had a recognized official status since prior to Egelian colonization in the 1700s. During the revolution, the language was the only official language of the revolutionary government, and afterwards it became co-official with Draddwyr and Dranianos. For the first 20 years of the Seung Socialist regime in Deulatoji there was an official policy of assimilating the other people of Drania into the Kyo ethnicity, and so there became many non-native speakers of the language. After the restoration of the Kingdom of Dranland, the Kyo language lost its recognition.

After the establishment of the nation of Dankuk following the Great Kyo Revolution of 3608, the Kyo language was again officially recognized and actively promoted.

Writing System Edit

Main article: Kyogul

Kyomal has one main alphabets known as Kyogul. Both of them were adopted for writing of the Kyo language before arriving to the Dranian Peninsula in the 7th Century. Gaoja, the ancient Gao-Showan pictographic script, was used during the early centuries of the Kyo Kingdoms, but was later abandoned due to its complexity. Now very few people, mostly highly educated, are able to read this script.

Kyogul is said to have some origination from Kazulian rune writing, though its origin is disputed. And just like Gao-Showan kana, Kyogul is a phonemic alphabet organized into syllabic blocks. Each block consists of at least two of the 24 Kyogul letters (jamo), with at least one each of the 14 consonants and 10 vowels. These syllabic blocks can be written horizontally from left to right as well as vertically from top to bottom in columns from right to left. It has been statistically proven that the switch to Kyogul has significantly increased literacy.

OOC Edit

It's basically Korean.
