constructed language: pikito

content words

  • p (/p/): thing, something, object, part
  • t (/t/): see, know, think, mean, idea
  • k (/k/): act, make, move, cause
  • m (/m/): big, much, many, very
  • n (/n/): time, duration
  • x (/ʔ/): place
  • h (/h/): this, it, here
  • s (/s/): no, nothing, not, opposite


  • a: predicate
  • e: object
  • i: modifier
  • o: nothing


a content word must always be followed by exactly one particle. a sentence contains a subject, followed by “a”, followed by the “verb” (which can be any content word), followed optionally by “e” and an object. additional predicates may be specified by repeating “a”, and additional objects within predicates may be specified by repeating “e”.

a content word can be followed by “i”, followed by another content word to modify it.

the particle “o” does nothing.
