"Hayden Tenno" overlaying "Warframe"

The Orokin Language is largely based upon English but apparently also contains extra characters for certain phonemes including diphthongs ("io") and digraphs ("th" and "sh"). Consonants are diagonally slanted and are written left to right, while vowels and accents are written above. Some vowels and numbers resemble familiar polarity symbols. There is also a thematic undertone to the letter construction reminiscent of Bushido calligraphy, the straight segments suggest power sword strokes and the arcs suggest fencing flourishes where each letter represents a lesson in movement. Although there are no live excerpts of the Orokin Language to demonstrate how it is spoken, the Lotus, Ordis, Tenno, Stalker and the Red Veil presumably understand and can speak Orokin.

There is frequent variation in both the direction of writing as well as the vertical orientation, this variation may likely be an artifact of texture placement or simply the mirroring of textures commonly used in the video game industry.

AlphabetEdit

Tennobet2

Official cipher.

Tennobet1

Official examples of deciphered script.

Officially referred to as the "Tennobet," there appears to be a geometrical pattern-to-letter construction very reminiscent of Korean lettering where the majority of the characters are progressively more complex. The Orokin syllabary is built upon a stem structure, the "M" and a set of modifiers that are attached to the left or right ends of this stem, such as the "R" character and portions of a "lower loop," e.g. "D" or "Z" and the nearly completed "S."

Seen in this way:

  • "H" is simply an "M" but only half as long.
  • "T" is an "M" with an "R" added at the left end.
  • "Z" is a "D" using the right end of the lower loop of a "D" with an "R" tacked onto the left end.
  • "P" is a "Z" with the right upper bar (which makes up the "M") removed.
  • "B" is a "D" with a single hook added to the end of the "lower loop."

It is also noted that by adding a small dash to a character often functions like adding an "h" behind the letter. For example, adding a dash to the characters for "P", "T" or "S" produce "PH", "TH" and "SH" phonetic spellings, respectively.

Weapon ResemblanceEdit

There are several weapons that take on the look and design of several Tennobet letters, it is yet unknown as to whether or not their design resemblance has any significant value to the lore behind the weapon.

These include but are not limited to:
