Language Orgins

The Language orginin likely came about during Kurona's founding, although so many cultures had blended together, (paticullarly of Japanese and European) a good majority were illeterate, and could barley speak their language fluently, or write and read it. It was decided to prvent divion in the nation, a language was developed.


Mono-Same (ex.saying someone is Monoreligious is saying they follow the same religion as someone else)

Fo-Fake (ex. Fosemian Fake Police officer)

Mi-Many (ex. Mizemal Many Wives)


Homosexual-Foxzia The politcally correct term would be Monoseiam

Slut-Devia (Pronunced De as in Day VIA as in MIA)


Kurma generally follows these photonics although very much of it can be manipulated to change into any style.
