Rokkon language or Patogi Rokkon or /patoˈgiˌ ˈroˌkon/ lit. “The Rule of Rokkon” is a Malayo-Polynesian inspired constructed language that I have been developing since late 2017. It had so many names before this very name. Rokkon has some various dialects that phonologically inspired by various Indonesian regional language like Minangkabau, Toraja Sa’dan, Karo, etc.

The dialects will be covered in different pages. Currently, Rokkon has been the most ambitious conlang project that I have ever worked on. It currently has 1,583 lexical entries in the standard dialect by the time I published this page and it will add up even more in the future. I wish one day I had a chance to teach this language to be spoken.
