The Khenian language is a language spoken in Khenas, which has evolved from the ancient tribal languages spoken in Khenas a longtime ago, althoug it is sometimes mistakenly believed to be aconstructed language. Khenian grammar resembles that of romance languages, with some differences, such as conjugation remaing the same regardless of tense and instead the suffix 'za is added for past tenses, and 'lo for future tense. for example "A retran" means "I speak", and "A retran'za" means "I spoke", and the complete absence of articles. Also, if the is a phrase with a noun and an adjective, it is written (noun) ha (adjective), and ha can be taken to mean of, as it is used as that when theadjective is used as a noun. for example "The bright sun" would be written ast ha finna (literal translation would be "sun of bright"). Also, double letters are said twice, instead of being treated like single letters, except for a double s, which has a [ts] sound, and a double l, which has a [w] sound.
The Khenian Alphabet has 22 letters. It has the same set of letters as the English one, except it does not have the letters c, q, v, and x.
