We have our own language in the Empire. It is used both for our Micronation as well as the chaha book universe. There are already 4000 words, however not all of them are used in contemporary living since we will also host games and have neat stories in the Hanian Culture.
There are many unique things about the language.
No alphabet: Instead you learn bases / segments which make up words. Most of them have meanings.
mu : mouth, speech, language * Ha : Light, Divinity, God / Source
Two ways of using it: Mimic and Glyph. Mimic has the words broken up into segments [muv ; ta] which prevents two similar words looking the same. However to someone not knowing Hanian it makes it even hard to see where one word ends and the next begins. It’s symbolic of Immortality and Unity, two concepts highly important in Hanian culture.[ge glo ; tin ke esh ; tan nid krjnd ke ma ; wa ul o ; tu ; wan ve hur ; tal]
Glyph is still a work in progress; as shown by the example below.
Rosetta Stone: The language in itself can be used as a Rosetta stone; learning simple concepts then building your way up to harder things. In addition we will use various techniques to make learning it more fun and easier.
Unique Concepts: Many Hanian concepts and words are unique. There are even a few untranslatable words where part of the meaning is lost if you don’t grog the culture or the way the word bases interact with each other. Don’t worry, many of them you’ll learn by immersion as you do things here in the Empire and through the game.
Modern Vocabulary: We have very modern vocabulary fit for the 21rst century and beyond. The eels are harder to translate into Hanian than the Hovercraft.
Much more to come soon including a dedicated language site for those who are interested! Of course at the beginning you can only learn it by the basics we make available to everyone. Those who are Hanian, those who are fans of the book series Chaha and linguists will likely have a crack at it in the very beginning. However, later on we will make all of it public and we create some public classes and workshops. There are some unique ideas in the works, which will really bring Hanian forward unlike many other conlang’s out there. Jump start your learning by learning the basics here.

There is also a Hanian Twitter, but it’s still kind of new.

Hanian is featured on the ConWorkShop website, a place where mostly Linguists and other conlang enthusiasts hang out to build and discuss languages.
