Tenses

Arm Gestures

Originating from the silencer talk of hunter and warrior tactics; these are agreed physical idioms conveyed by combinations of fist bumping, arm flexing, joint angling and wide contact motions.

Small Animals

Insects, lizards and tiny birds kept in tiny cages and pouches on a hunter's person are trained or coerced to make their way to distant coordinating groups on a hunt.

Sentence Structure

Natural Mimicry

In order to disguise themselves against enemy groups or unknown invaders, the hunter makes no sounds with their mouths. Talkers use sticks, pebbles and strings to make makeshift sound making utensils that mimic the wind through leaves, the rain on water, or the sound of stones in a brook. These are hand held tools that are operated at various speeds in their hands.

Structural Markers

Trained Geckos

Coloured geckos, better conditioned to traverse sneakily across terrain, convey coded meaning in their scale patterns once they find their intended target.   Sometimes, they would carry terrain samples to indicate locations the senders want the recipient to go.

Arrow Spears

Essentially a giant arrow with a small chamber in the between the shaft and arrow head to carry burning powders. When it impacts the ground some far distance away, a release of coloured smoke breaks through the canopy to direct the vanguard to a given location. And depending on the smoke, what they would be doing once they get there.
