The Coruman language is the lingua franca of the Scattered Worlds. Virtually unchanged for over a billion years, Coruman is a lyrical language with simple grammatical rules, ideally suited to computer translation. In Coruman vocabulary there is frequent use of compound words (as in German but even more so).
In the Scattered Worlds tales, English translations of Coruman are usually rendered in iambic pentameter.
The Coruman number system is a base-6 system with positional notation.
The Coruman alphabet consists of 45 symbols for phonemes, 6 digits, and several punctuation symbols. Spelling is entirely phonetic.
