Venolia's main and official language is English. The ceremonial language is Latin. We use Latin for religion, coronations, weddings, funerals, and any other ceremonial or religious rites. Most adults that were born here are fluent in both English and Latin. Children are taught it at an early age. But all road signs, most advertisements, tv programs, and other stuff like that are in English.

Latin : PAX PER BELLVM MMXII
English : Peace Through War 2012

The official languages of Zeorus are English and Zeira (the language of the indigenous peoples). Spanish is a recognized minority language. Some languages from neighboring indigenous tribes live on, but they have not been spoken widely since these tribes were annexed by Zeorus in the nineteenth century. These include Errom, Alema, Grezi, and Luxen. All seven languages mentioned here are written with Latin characters.

Eburneans usually speak English. However, in recent years, Grohevaller has become a large language in our country with about 10% of our population being Grohevaller. It is based loosely on English in terms of structure and sound but varies wildly in its written form which is more like Dutch.

Postby Kengrieland » Sun Mar 04, 2012 9:14 am

Kengrieland has a rich linguistic heritage. There are three languages granted official status in Kengrieland: Oerelian, Olbugish and Kengritian (in Oerelian: örlänsk, olbugyänsk, këngränsk, in Olbguish: Orleka, Albukka, Keńrika, in Kengritian: Orlestsu, Olbustsu, Kengritsu). The majority of people speak Oerelian at home, however many speak both Oerelian and Olbugish in their daily lives as most (if not all) aspects of Kengritian culture is bilingual in nature. Education is conducted in a bilingual environment beginning from infant school, and from secondary school, classes are taught in the preferred language of the instructor so all children must be bilingual before that time. The government actively encourages parents, and families in general, to speak both languages at home. Although 'Kengritsu' language lends its name to the country (which literally means 'land of the Kengrits'), it is now only a minority language which is protected within the constitution of 1698. However, Kengritian is taught in only a handful of schools and employers expect Kengritian speakers to also speak either Oerelian or Olbugish, or both. This has led to some Kengritian speakers to self-segregate, living in exclusively Kengritian-speaking neighbourhoods, opening Kengritian-medium schools and developing Kengritian-speaking culture outside of the main culture of the country.

Here is some examples of Oerelian:
Halö, ją kun vej Kengriëland â vię tâlë olëmęś örlänsk hej. Höj âr dat bam deij?
Hello, I come from Kengrieland and we generally speak Oerelian here. What is it like in your country?

And Olbugish:
Halla, ejk komar van Keńrilantu i mia śvekkan hërrëm ok Albukka. Hva śvekkas Do ińa Doram Lantu?
Hello, I come from Kengrieland and we speak also Olbugish here. What do you speak in your country?

And finally, Kengritian:
Hai, jega se da Kengrita an et se en Domađ, te justa en kleńe Ondhaal van Léit hir jogar Lań sbréig en bersùtei kon.
Hello, I come from Kengrieland and it is a shame that only a few people can speak and understand my language here.

All languages developed from Proto-Germanic.

Some statistics:
Oerelian speakers - 99% (3% speaking only Oerelian, 96% being multilingual with Olbugish and/or Kengritian)
Olbugish speakers - 99% (11% speaking only Olbugish, 88% being multilingual with Oerelian and/or Kengritian)
Kengritian speakers - 10% (1.5% speaking only Kengritian, 8.5% being multilingual with Oerelian and/or Olbugish)
Other: 1% (including, Chinese Mandarin, Cantonese, Swedish, Norwegian)
