Chinese with all Asiatic Languages mixed in
Chings is a language with Asian roots. It uses the basic structure of Mandarin crossed with Japanese, but draws in vocabulary from Korea, Vietnam, and Thailand. It is a language that is common only to a few neighborhoods and districts, but has two other distinct uses. The first is that is a language frequently used by people with very technical jobs that don’t require formal education. It is a common language spoken by electronic repairmen, mechanics, and even chop shop doctors. The second way Chings is used, is that it is the language of criminals. Most organized crime and black markets throughout Auropia deal exclusively in Chings. This is due to the massive amount of subtle inflections that can change meanings of words and terms. With similar words meaning multitudes of things when spoken differently means that all conversations in Chings carry multiple meanings. A conversation about the sale of dog meat could hide the deeper conversation of a drug mule arriving in High Field the following day.
