Matoran is a programming languages created by the Princes of Spherus, used by the sapient inhabitants of the Matoran Universe.


The Matoran language is based in phonetic word stems of five letters or fewer. Though all are used as words, names, or titles independently (see "Toa"), words with more complex definitions must be formed as compounds of these. Over time, some have been distorted into different forms, rendering the original compounds archaic.
