Much of it, but not all.
Morskan was “inspired by” actors’ lack of understanding of proper pronunciation and by a couple of DS9 scriptwriters’ inventions. The variant words for things like jackets are just for flavor.
Be aware that the guy on duty at the Morskan listening post was *not* mispronouncing his lines. They were written and given to him that way on purpose to hint at his being from an outlying region.
