Eniaman was the main language of the Eniamos of Eniam. It was formed of many very different dialects until it was standardized around 3,000 BBY. Since it was easiest for all of them, Eniaman was also adopted by the other natives, the Drijoken and the Keaarglrs, when the three species united.

A chart comparing the Eniaman characters to Aurebesh.

It was quite diverse and flexible. In Eniam, adjectives were said after subject nouns. It focused on the Eniam savanna's different grasses, trees, berries, and predators. They had many words for things found in the forest, too, but when the Drijoken became acquainted with the Eniamo, new words for different minerals, metals, and cave shapes were borrowed from the original Drijoken language of Driyoin and modified to be completely vocal.

Eniaman AlphabetEdit

EniamanList

A list of Aurebesh to Eniaman letter transliterations.

Eniaman had a written alphabet. The letters could be translated into the Aurebesh alphabet quite easily, but Eniaman used single letters in some cases in which Basic used digraphs, and vice-versa.

The Aurebesh alphabet's order was A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, K, L, M, N, O, P, Q, R, S, T, U, V, W, X, Y, Z, Ch, Ae, Eo, Kh, Ng, Oo, Sh, Th. In contrast, the Eniaman alphabet went P, F, J, W, Y, D, K, Kw, Q, Qw (also transliterated as Qu), B, V, L, G, R, Rr, Z, Zh, S, Sh, Ch, Kh, T, Th, H, N, M, U, O, A, E, I. Each Eniaman letter's name was simply the letter's pronunciation followed by aa, for example, P'aa, F'aa, J'aa ... A'aa E'aa I'aa.

Eniaman vowels were complicated, with many accent and pronunciation marks that were usually not transliterated. Generally, the letters I'aa and E'aa were pronounced short, unless they were at the end of a word. An e'aa at the end of a word was usually a combination of a short e and a long a. The letter A'aa was almost always short, and the letter O'aa was almost always long. The /eɪ/ sound (as in "late") and the /ɒ/ sound (as in "not") were rare in Eniaman. For example, baai was pronounced /bææaɪ/.

Y was only used as a consonant. Q'aa and Qw'aa/Qu'aa were their own letters, similar to K'aa and Kw'aa respectively, but the Q was pronounced in the back of the throat more than the K.
