According to a BBC article, the speaking style is rather atypical and has no set guidelines. The words' specific meanings and the clarity of their style and design are unclear. In its own right, the dialect is distinctive and fascinating.

After the specified age, kids continue to speak in their mother's vocabulary while learning the language of the male from their father.

The community members also use several titles for their main diet in the current situation. For instance, men refer to the basic dish as "iyong," whereas women refer to it as "irui." Similar to this, a wide variety of everyday objects like clothing, water, air, fire, etc. have various names.
