Clofabosin or Clofabian (English /kloʊˈfæbəsɪn/ kloh-FAB-ə-sin; Clofabosin: ƎΠΔꙞΛỺΔᖵꞰⱵΔLꝨИ clo·fabo·serotin /klofaboˈseɾotin/ 'AUG-river-language', clofaboluxedan /klofaboˈluksedan/ or simply ƎΠΔꙞΛỺΔᖵꝨИ clofabosin /'klofabosin/ [ˈkʰlōfábōsì(n)] 'Clofabian [thing]') is a conlang inspired by drug generic names (international nonproprietary names, such as sertraline for Zoloft). It seeks to answer the question "What if drug names were a language?"

Clofabosin is an agglutinative, fusional-ish language with a consistently head-final grammar. It is the most prominent language in the Clofabic dialect continuum, which also includes the closely related Asvasiran language. Clofabosin is the official language of Clofabolocin ('Clofabian land') and Dodellia (Clofabosin: dodellocridan) in Etalocin.

Clofabian script

Clofabosin uses a script known as ativasabatin in Clofabosin, a case-less LTR alphabet, but speakers write in a style of cursive handwriting. It was invented by the lexicographer and poet Ativan Tdap.

The full letter name is used for declining, and the short form (omit the parenthesized part) is used for spelling out words. The alphabetical order is as follows:

  • X: D (do)
  • Ⱶ: R (re)
  • Ŧ: M (mi)
  • Ꙟ: F (fa)
  • ᖵ: S (sol)
  • Π: L (la)
  • L: T (ti)
  • Σ: G (go)
  • H: CH (che)
  • Ш: P (pe)
  • И: N (nar)
  • Ⳙ: V (vi)
  • Ꝟ: TH (tha)
  • Ỻ: B (ba)
  • Ǝ: C (ce)
  • Џ: Z (zu)
  • Ɥ: H (ha)
  • Ꝩ: I (i)
  • Ʞ: E (e)
  • Λ: A (a)
  • Δ: O (o)
  • Ξ: U (u)
  • ᒣ: Y (y)
  • Ɐ: X (ces) (a ligature of C and S)

For sake of aesthetics, in the romanization only personal names are capitalized.

Clofabosin uses a base-12 positional numeral system. The digits are as follows:

ɔ ı ʎ ɺ ħ ʕ ʑ ɛ ɴ κ ə ʋ = 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 X E

duodecimal point: :

1728's separator (optional): ·


2017 = 1,201dd = ı·ʎɔı

π = 3.184809493b918...dd = ɺ:ıɴħ·ɴɔк·ħкɺ·кʋı·ɴ...


Clofabosin has a small phonemic inventory of 14 consonants and 5 vowels.


Stress is weak and word-initial. The pitch rises from the first syllable of a word to the second syllable, as in Tamil; the overall intonation of Standard Clofabosin is Tamil-like.


Clofabosin consonants
Labial Dental/Alveolar Velar Glottal
Nasal m /m/ n /n/ [ŋ]
Plosive voiceless p /p/ t, th /t/ c, ch, k /k/
voiced b /b/ d /d/ g /g/
Fricative voiceless f, ph /f/ s /s/ [x] (h /h/)
voiced v /v~ʋ~w/ z, (j) /z/
Approximant l, ll /l/
Flap r /ɾ/
  • The letter x is used for the common sequence /ks/.
  • h /h/ occurs only in loanwords.
  • j occurs only in loans and is pronounced identically to z.
  • The spellings th, ch occur in proper names and loans.
  • Syllable-initial /p, t, k/ are lightly aspirated like in Japanese. However, they are unaspirated after /s/.
  • Word-final /b, d, g/ are devoiced to [p, t̪, k]: ustekinumab [ustekinumap] 'welcome'.
  • /n, t, d, l/ are dental.
  • /ɾ/ is normally alveolar [ɾ] or retracted alveolar [ɾ̠], but may be reduced to [ɹ~ɻ] when word-final. It is pronounced as [ʀ~ʁ] in some dialects.
  • /s, z/ are laminal alveolar in standard Clofabosin.
    • /z/ has more dialectal variance: [z ~ dz ~ ʒ ~ dʒ ~ ʐ ~ ɻ ~ j ~ ʝ ~ h].
  • [ŋ] is an allophone of /n/ before velars.
  • /v/ is a labiodental fricative [v] or approximant [ʋ].
    • [w] is an allophone of /v/ after velars /k, g/. It is transliterated qu, gu in this case.
  • /k/ is lenited to [x] after /e, o, a, u/ and [ç] after /i/.
  • In colloquial speech intervocalic /b/ is often deleted or lenited to [w]: clofabosin becomes [klofaosi] or [klofawosi]. The ending -mab is also often pronounced [ma].


Clofabosin vowels
Front Central Back
Close i, y /i/ u /u/
Mid e /e/ o /o/
Open a /a/
  • Word-initial syllables traditionally also had vowel length (marked with an underdot under the vowel in dictionaries), not distinguished by most younger speakers.
  • /u/ is often slightly fronted or compressed. However, in singing it is always fully back rounded [u].
  • /i, u/ are lowered to [ɪ, ʊ] before /ɾ/.
  • /e, o/ are mid [e̞, o̞].
  • /a/ is central [ä].


Clofabosin initial clusters are similar to Latin:

  • XR: pl pr bl br fl fr tr dr cl cr gl gr
  • sC: sp st spr (str is very rare)
  • Others: x (rare)

Historically most instances of me- have changed to ma- or mo-.


Streptomycin accent

  • In the colloquial Streptomycin accent /ɾC/ sequences assimilate into geminates [Cː]: riconercept [ɾikonekkept] 'goodbye'. /n, t, d/ in this position become apical [ɳ, ʈ, ɖ].
  • /z/ may be pronounced [j].
  • Final /n/ is often dropped.

Dodellian accent

Southern Dodellian accent

  • v = [w]
  • f = [x]
  • z = [ɦ] or dropped entirely
  • e o = [ɛ ɔ]

=== "Saigon" accent ==÷



Clofabian nouns can take one of many case clitics, which are not true suffixes. Suffixes for "cases" other than the nominative and the accusative are attached to the combining form of the noun. Plurals are marked with -(a)zin, -(a)z(o)- (e.g. amp·in person, ampazin 'people'; acti·n 'day', actizin 'days'); pluralization is usually reserved for animates, and are never used with numbers or quantifiers.

Tense and mood

Clofabosin verbs are completely regular and inflect for tense and mood. Subjects may be omitted, as in Japanese and Korean. In tables below, affixes in parentheses denote non-standard or dialectal forms.

Consonant-stem verbs have the following endings:

  • -avir
  • -umab
  • -azole

For V + b, c, d, g, l, m, n, p, r, s, t + suffix beginning with t:

  • -ptinib, -ctinib, -tinib, -ctinib-, -ltinib, -mtinib, -ntinib, -ptinib, -rtinib, -stinib, -tinib
  • -ptu-, -ctu-, -tu, -ctu-, -ltu-, -mtu-, -ntu-, -ptu-, -rtu-, -stu-, -tu-
Indicative Subjunctive "If" "Only if" "When" "While" Conjunctive Adverbial Resultative Optative "Because" / Quotative
Past -(a)zole [-(a)zol] -(a)zumab -(a)zosartan, -(a)zartan -(a)zobactam -(a)zosertib, -(a)zertib, -(a)zokalant -sermin -(a)zolast -(o)stat -(o)stim, -mostim -(a)mer -pirdine [-piɾdin]
Present -(a)vir -(u)mab, -mumab, -momab, -virumab -sartan -bactam -sertib, -kalant -fermin -lukast -(a)vudine, -(a)virdine, -fenadine
Timeless -tinib -vetmab [vemab] or [veɾmab] -tisartan, -tartan -termin -trodast -tadine, -tidine [-tidin]
Future -cept, -vircept -ximab, -viximab -cisartan, -xartan -xermin -lukast -clidine [-klidin]

somewhat high register; connotes "in view of the fact that..."

The present tense may be optionally inflected for person as follows (though pronouns in the subject force the verb to be in the third person):

Present subject affixes
Singular Plural
1 -virenz [-viɾens] -viroc
2 -virsen -virine
3 -vir

(The present tense also has a mirative form, -virimat.)

Analogously the past tense may be inflected as follows:

Past subject affixes
Singular Plural
1 -(a)zolam, -(a)zam -(a)zole
2 -(a)zole -(a)zoline
3 -(a)zole

The subjunctive is used like the infinitive and imperative in other languages (e.g. stilocamab! 'Sing!'). It can also be used to indicate uncertainty, like "may" or "might".

Yes-no questions are formed by adding the question particle pegol to the subjunctive: zenazumab pegol? (Did he go?). In spoken Clofabosin -mab pegol is often shortened to -mapel or -pel. Wh-questions do not use this ending: cesin gliserotin(avir)? = What language is this?

For realis forms (e.g. indicative, attributive, "when", "while", conjunctive), the negative marker is -fo-: sabafovir 'he does not write'. For irrealis forms (e.g. subjunctive, conditional, optative, verbal noun), the negative marker is -tu(mo)-: sabatumab!, sabatumumab! or sabatumomab! means 'Don't write!'

  • 'can' (ability) uses -tecan (inflected as if it were -tecavir; the attributive is -taxel)
    • For the related sense "can do X [noun]" or "know how to do X", use X atevir (dative-stative; cf. Japanese dekiru).
  • 'must' uses -mab tiuxetan (spoken Clofabosin: -matixan); the subject is put into the dative.
    • Interrogative: usually -mab tiuxetanupel? or -matixapel?
    • -tumab tiuxetan means 'must not'.
  • 'should' uses -mab cituxetan (spoken Clofabosin: -macituxan or -macixan)
  • 'may' (permission) uses -mab vedotin (spoken Clofabosin: -mavertin)
    • Interrogative: usually -mab vedotinupel? or -mavertipel?
    • -tumab vedotin means 'doesn't have to'.
  • 'is worth' uses -xaban
  • 'probably' uses -mab merpentan
  • 'right when' uses -fingol or -zofingol
  • Emphasis or agreement uses -toxa-/-toxu-: Ene nelcatoxaximab pegol? means 'Will he really love me?'
  • There is an archaic imperative -kinra.
  • "regardless of" uses -mab elucaine.

The verbal noun uses the suffix -cin/-kin/-kiren. For negating verbal nouns, -tucin is used: Gositucin guancumavir 'Not giving is worse'.

The desiderative uses the following suffixes:

Indicative Subjunctive
Past -prazole, (-prozole, -prole) -prazumab
Present -profen, -previr, (-provir) -promab
Timeless -protinib -provetmab
Future -procept -proximab

For example, raxin plocaprofen. = 'I want to drink water.'

For "I want [noun]", the verb used depends on the context: for example, "I want a car" is translated as fusnan ibuprofen ("I want to have a car"), and "I want an apple" is rendered olpan spoprofen ("I want to eat an apple").

The desiderative can also be used for dative-stative (the "logical subject" is in the dative) verbs with 1st person logical subjects:

  • endone clofabosinatecaprofen. = 'I want to be able to speak Clofabosin.'

Predicate nouns can fill in for both cytavir (copula) and keravir (to exist). The predicative is formed by replacing the final -n in the nominative case of a noun with the following suffixes (which can be omitted):

Predicative suffixes
Affirmative indicative Negative indicative Affirmative subjunctive Negative subjunctive
Past -nazole -fozole -nazumab -tuzumab
Present -navir -fovir -numab -tumab
Timeless -natinib -fotinib -navetmab -tuvetmab
Future -nercept, -navircept -focept -naximab -tuximab

The copular verb cytavir (often shortened to tavir in colloquial Clofabosin) may also be used. For example: endin voprafenavir and endin voprafen cytavir both mean "I am a teacher". Using cytavir is necessary when using an oblique case NP as a predicate: Endin funanetamib cytavir. 'I am in my bedroom.'

The predicative and desiderative suffixes may be fused as follows:

Indicative Subjunctive
Past -noprazole -noprazumab
Present -noprofen -nopromab
Timeless -noprotinib -noprovetmab
Future -noprocept -noproximab

For example: endin voprafenoprofen means "I want to be a teacher".

Attributive verbs

Attributive verbs are used to form relative clauses. They may be formed with the following suffixes:

Indicative Desiderative
Past -zil (-pidil) -prozil
Present -dil -pril
Timeless -tril, -til -protil
Future -cil -pracil

For example, clorodil taxin means 'a big book'; endin drepazil taxin means 'the book that I've read'.

Nominalized attributives have the following forms:

Indicative Desiderative
Past -zil·in -prozil·in
Present -dil·in -pril·in
Timeless -tril·in -protil·in
Future -cil·in -pracil·in
Tenseless -(a)n·in -pran·in

Derivational suffixes

The suffix -tin, -t(o)- is used as a patientive: spovir 'eat' → spotin 'food', inosivir 'dwell, inhabit' → inositin 'apartment'

The suffix -(o)cavir 'do' may be used to "verb" nouns or borrowed words: for example, spuisocavir means 'He plays the sbwiþ (a Talmic plucked instrument with sympathetic strings)'.


The suffixes -li and -ca are used to form the passive resp. causative forms. (e.g. spovir 'eat' > spolivir 'is eaten').

There is also a less productive causative affix -si, which causes umlaut. (e.g. spesivir 'to feed' from spovir)


  • bol- = 'too much'
  • clo- = 'very'
  • luta- = equative ("as X as"); also a suffective ("sufficiently X")
    • "X like Y" uses Y-ac (luta-)X
    • "as X as Y" uses Y-filcon (luta-)X
    • "X enough for Y" uses Y-one luta-X
  • guan- = comparative (optional when there is a comparandum, which is marked with -conast)
  • peg- = superlative

gadovir 'good' has an irregular comparative and superlative: adip.avir and dip.avir.

For example, Scelasin tricib pegnibulidil serotinavir. means 'Skellan is the world's most studied language.'

Auxiliary verbs

  • -bendavir 'to inadvertently X, to end up X-ing, to finish X-ing' (< 'to fall')
  • -conavir 'to try X-ing' (< 'to see')
  • -ciclovir 'to receive someone's X-ing; to benefit from someone's X-ing' (< 'to receive')

  • -codavir 'to out-X' (< 'to surpass')

Other affixes

  • -campator 'instead of (verb)-ing'
  • -cillin: 'let alone'
  • -cog: cohortative
    • Ilocog! 'Let's play!'
    • En alfa spocog! 'Let me eat it too!'

  • -nesib: 'by X-ing'
  • -parin: like -vudine eparin
  • -ro- = perfect tense, -xi- = future in the present/...


Clofabosin uses a base-10 numeral system. For attributive numerals the -in is replaced with the classifier suffix -fos: for example, esin becomes esofos. The -avir suffix is used to build ordinals; -il is also an ordinal suffix but is used in compounds.

The counting numbers:

  • 0: viuzan
  • 1: esin (inanimate), erin (animate)
    • "first" is sulcavir, sulcil
  • 2: ribin
  • 3: salin
  • 4: lopin
  • 5: orfin
  • 6: quibin/quin
  • 7: zolin
  • 8: tixin
  • 9: vadin
  • 10: clutin
  • 11: clutesin
  • 12: cluribin
  • 13: clusalin
  • 14: clulopin
  • 15: clutorfin
  • 16: cluquibin/cluquin
  • 17: cluzolin
  • 18: clutixin
  • 19: cluvadin
  • 20: resvin
  • 30: tebin
  • 40: prolin
  • 50: aruzin
  • 60: quidin
  • 70: zoledin
  • 80: tixedin
  • 90: varedin
  • 100: sanin
  • 1000: ictin

Short attributive forms: efos, rifos, salfos, lofos, orfos, quifos, zofos, tifos, vafos, clufos


Clofabosin is almost completely head-final, and has SOV as the unmarked word order.

endol maximaxine nelcavir.
I love my grandmother.


  • beta = but

Existence clauses

For expressing existence the verb kera- "to exist" is used.

etamib suxitin keravir.
There is a picture on the wall.

Liking and wanting

Clofabosin expresses "I like Y" by the construction Y dasavir.

olpan dasavir.
I like apples. (cf. Japanese Ringo ga suki da.)

"I like to do Y" can similarly be expressed with Y-cin dasavir.

faldicin dasavir.
I like swimming.

For "X likes Y" the construction X-NOM Y-ACC dasabuvir is used.

Lunesta olpane dasabuvir.
Lunesta likes apples.

Similarly for desideratives:

olpan spoprofen.
I want an apple. (cf. Japanese Ringo ga tabetai.)
Lunesta olpan spoprobuvir.
Lunesta wants an apple.

Cause clauses

Cause clauses are formed with the quotative.

Complement clauses

Complement clauses ("that + [statement]" in English) are formed using the quotative. The bare quotative is enough when using it with a "quoting" verb such as epavir 'say' or atrivir 'believe'. To use the complement clause as a noun eparin, the verbal noun of epavir, is often used: Felavudine eparin vocivir. 'I don't like the fact that it's cold'.

Purpose clauses

Purpose clauses can be formed with -DESID + -QUOT (-provudine in the present tense and -propirdine in the past tense). Colloquially -RES (-stim/-mostim) can be used.

drepatine clofabosinaprovudine fumazole.
drepa-t-ine clofab-osi-na-pro-vudine fuma-zole
He bought the book in order to be able to speak Clofabosin. (lit. ... saying "I want to be able to speak Clofabosin")

In the first person -DESID + -CONJ can be used (-prolukast in the present tense and -prazolast in the past tense).

Tense agreement

Tense agreement states that dependent clauses must have the same tense as the main clause.

endozopin obinutuzumab, predsertib diralizole.
So that my body might not be dirty, I always got washed.

May This Ditoren

May this ditoren (an instrument) be heard,
The beautiful enin (a bird) be seen,
The sweetness of the apizan (a fruit),
The fragrant buctan (a flower) of the rainforest,
The gentle breezes of the north,
The cooling waters of the Clofabin (the river),
Be felt by every soul in the homeland of Picumen (a historical figure).
