Käntwo (lit: tongue) is an auxillary and sacred constructed language spoken by the spiritual movement Oynositas Kuloš. Its usage is included in ceremonies, mantras and ritual texts. Käntwo is a constructed language based on Indo-European and Semitic languages. The base vocabulary derives especially from Hebrew, Sanskrit and the Tocharian languages. Furthermore Käntwo has loanwords from languages like Albanian, Akkadian, Sumerian or Latin.
Käntwo was created in the summer of 2018 for the movement of Oynositas Kuloš in order to find a new way to express their spirituality. Their movement's ideas and thoughts were based on both Indian religions like Buddhism or Hinduism and Jewish mysticsm. Therefore one of the movement's leaders, Palitar Dabošžan, decided to create a language that would fit for both. He loaned words from Indo-European and Semitic languages and created Käntwo.
The grammar of Käntwo is loosely based on Sanskrit and Latin.
The word order of Käntwo is Subject-Verb-Object. An exception is the lack of a subject (name or thing) and the pronoun is used as a subject. Then the word order is Verb-Object.
