The official language of Grussland is the local dialect of German, which is a less formal and less structured form of the language with heavy English influences. English and French are also widely understood.

Modern Zanfari is the dominant language spoken in Zanforadon, where 60% of the population can speak it fluently or can at least speak it to have conversations to other speakers. The Zanfa and Zanari, since they're sister cultures, speak it as a first language and are taught at a young age speak and write Modern Zanfari as well as speak the 5 other languages spoken in Zanforadon;

Vedusa's native language- Veduxi, spoken with a similar structure to Khoisan languages, though studies have found that Veduxi and the Khoisan languages were developed independently from each other.
Fernnunos's native language- Ferngulli, though a unique language due to the fact that the vocal cords of Fernnunos differ somewhat compared to humans, is still a learnable language.
Sharfana's native language- Sharnafusa, a language that perplexes foreigners when they first visit the country due to it sounding not too dissimilar to beatboxing, though its relatively easy to learn.
Minakari's native language- Minakouto, a language that is descended from Japanese.
Koh'oh's native language- Koh'ohian, a language that is surprisingly similar to the Hawaiin language.

Due to this, many young Zanfas and Zanari's are considered hyperpolyglots.

English, Spanish, and French are the official languages of the NAU, though English is the most widely spoken. English-based creole languages are also common in the Caribbean provinces. French is the official language of Quebec and Louisiana, and Spanish is the official language of the Californias.

Indigenous languages are somewhat used at the general level, usually for treaty-making and official ceremonies between the Crown and the Indigenous peoples. They are the official languages where they are spoken in depending on the Autonomous Indigenous Nation or Native Land Grant.

Newfoundland Gaelic and Cape Breton Gaelic are Irish and Scottish Gaelic dialects spoken in Newfoundland and the Island of St. John and Nova Scotia, respectively.

Acadian French and Louisania French are French dialects spoken in former Acadia of New France (present-day Nova Scotia) and Louisiana, respectively. Many Acadians were removed from Acadia and many resettled in Louisiana and later became known as Cajuns.

Caribbean Hindustani developed when indentured servants and other immigrants to the New World from India settled in the West Indies. Other languages from the Indian subcontinent were also introduced through indentured servitude (the last system of unfree labour in the NAU, which was abolished in 1867) or general immigration of people from India to the NAU.

Other European languages may have communities were nearly all speak the language, usually in communities in the Western Provinces that had homogenous homesteaders that moved west to have more freedom not only from their oppressive European continental governments but also the NAU general government. Germans, Ukrainians, Poles, Silesians, Latvians, and Lithuanians settling the Great Plains provinces for example, or Russians in Yukonia.

Interestingly enough there are way more languages than there are lexicons so the ones listed below are the only ones that have a supported alphabet.

Postby The Emnian Realm » Mon Mar 07, 2022 11:37 am

There are several languages spoken in Emnia (many brought by immigrant communities), but our "national" languages are:

Emnian (Eamnhnidht, [ˈavʲ.ɾʲiːtʲ] like "AV-reet") is the primary spoken language and sole official language at the national level in Emnia.
  • Grammatically and structurally, Emnian is a relatively conservative Emnitic (ooc: Semitic) language with an inflexible Verb-Subject-Object word order and a complex verbal morphology based on triliteral roots, supported by a largely analytical syntax.
  • Phonetically, Emnian is significantly divergent from other Emnitic languages. The original consonant system of Old Emnian collapsed under the influence of other Calatanian languages, with several Old Emnian consonants undergoing mergers and the emphatic consonants coalescing with the plain series.
  • Lenition is a salient feature of Emnian; while this is found in other Emnitic languages (compare irl Hebrew and Aramaic, for example), the scope of lenition in Emnian is broader and has more extreme phonetic consequences, such as the "colouring" of vowels.
  • While Emnian basic vocabulary is usually derived from Old Emnian, and Modern Emnian's lexicon has been enriched by new words deliberately coined from Old Emnian roots, a significant portion of Emnian vocabulary is derived from other Calatanian languages.
A sample of Emnian (with Old Emnian and Sudric for Comparison):
Modern Emnian:Látha toichiólann an anaoisimh l'ocró a t-an seaphairimh be scoill án an eogham.
Old Emnian: — Lo tukaləna ha-našim liqəro et ha-səparim be-beyt-hen ha-seper ha-yom.
Sudric: — "The women are not able to read the books in their school today."

Note: scoill is a loanword; the equivalent word in Old Emnian would be beyt ha-seper

Eastonian is traditionally spoken by the Eastonians in the Far East and to a much lesser extent in the Eastern and Southern Highlands. Around 15,000 people are officially registered as Eastonians in the Eastonian Census, but the number of people of recent Eastonian heritage is estimated to be at around 50,000 people. The number of people who can speak Eastonian, including as a second language, is estimated at around 25,000 people. Most people of Eastonian heritage are today native speakers of Emnian as the result of past Emnisation policies. Speakers reserve the right to be educated and to receive communication from the government in their own language in the Far East administrative area.

Nahuatl is the most spoken language. English is the 2nd most as English is still the language of business, Mandarin is the 3rd most as we have a lot of Chinese immigrants and China has had a big influence on us in general throughout our history. Mayan is the 4th most spoken language, we created a united Mayan language. Finally, Spanish is the 5th most spoken language.

When German Coasts was first founded in 1811, its official language was a native language from West Africa, as that is where our founder came from, as did his top generals and officials.

As time marched on, as German immigrants arrived to our nation, German quickly became the dominant language rather than the previous native West African language. In the 1920s, the official language was changed to German and many older government officials today still speak it.

By the 1980s, as English became a lingua franca internationally, the Senate held a vote to add English to the list of official languages. It passed 13-9.

Today, the official languages of the German Coasts remain German and English, though there have been numerous proposals in the Senate to remove German from this list. None of these proposals went anywhere. Our President can speak German, English, French, and Spanish.

Ukrainian is the official language of Independent Cossack Ukraine. We do recognize regional languages amongst some ethnic minorities on the borders with other countries.

Russian is the second most prevalent language in Independent Cossack Ukraine. Most Russian speakers live in the Eastern portion of the country.

Other regional languages include Crimean Tatar (a Turkic language spoken by Tatars living in Crimea), Rusyn (spoken by the Carpathian Ruthenian people on our Western frontier), Kalmyk (A Mongol language spoken by our Kalmyk minority), Polish (mostly in the Northwest), Yiddish (spoken by our Jewish minority), and Adygea (spoken by our Circassian minority in the Southeast of the country/Ukrainian Caucasus). German and English are sometimes spoken as languages for international business.
