Jacky Ryan's notes:

  • All Obobolish words should be spoken in a single breath to prevent misinterpretation.
  • Obobolish is sensitive to social context, do take note when practicing.
  • There is no separation of tense in Obobolish. This might be due to the difference between their way of life and ours.
  • A point to note: Until recently, it was thought that Obobolish was lacking in words that describe emotion. New research has shown that, in fact, the opposite is true.
  • Obobolish has a lot of obscure terms that have been lost with time.
  • The more complex the meaning, the longer the word. It is beyond imagination regarding the lexicon of Obobolish.
  • According to the literature...

A common theme of Obobolish words is that "Oh" and "Bo" are contrasts of each other. Sometimes (but not always) "Bo" has a positive value whereas "Oh" has a negative value.
