Gobldi Guk (which means 'language of the Goblins') is a language spoken by Goblins. The inspiration for this language is from the Harry Potter series of books, wherein the word Gobbledygook is used as the name of the language of goblins. Gobldi Guk could be that language.
Gobldi Guk is a simple language. It is not an especially ambitious project and not meant to ever reach the degree of sophistication I intend to reach with Albic (to which it is entirely unrelated). It is just a little side project - a funlang.

The back vowels are rounded, the others unrounded. All vowels are creaky voiced.
