Lacctose has various languages, the most spoken is Laccti Japanese, a combination of Modern Russian Cyrillic and Japanese Hiragana (Katakana is also included, but for foreign translation purposes)

However, Lensdale and other rural areas next to Valentina has a widespread of english speakers, the Southern Islands has all 3 Japanese writing systems, and Upper Madagan has Russian speaking masters.

However, Lacctose also comes in native languages, these include:
-Noge
-Eishik
-Verhal (most used in the Lacctosian Alps)
-Eishik Ravun (an indigenous language so rare its dying)

-Gondak
-Ishom (old Arabic with Cyrillic mix)
-Verhal Erhald (this name is somehow given after a native warrior)

-Yungto (some sort of Kyujitai writing system with old Hanzi)
-Orushi (same thing, but with Kanji oracle bone style added)
-Utushi (also the same thing, but more complicated)

-Utushi Poshka (this was used when the ancient kingdom of Moron (holy s**t, did i just typed that?!) existed and declared war on the opposing nation that used Utushi as their writing system)

I'd recommend not deleting all the lowercased letters and gather all the uppercased letters into one word

French is the dominant and official language of the Empire of Aikoland per our nation's constitution, which states that 'French is the official language of the state'. 94% of our population identifies French as being their native language and 98% report speaking it 'conversationally or better'.

Other than French, the languages of Aikoais, Saunian, and Boullién have all been recognized and granted special status in our nation since 1951. These are Romance languages native to the islands that make up Aikoland and all became extinct in the mid to late 18th century. A government-backed revival movement for these languages began in the early 20th century and, in 1951, they were recognized as 'native minority languages' and given special status as part of Aikoland's cultural and linguistic heritage via an Act of Parliament.

The most widely spoken foreign language is English, with 36% of the population reporting to speak it 'conversationally or better'. English education is also mandatory in Aikolandais schools starting at age 7.

The next two most commonly spoken foreign languages are Italian and Spanish, although only 8% and 5% of the population understands them. These languages are also the two most common choices for an additional foreign language, as all Aikolandais students are required to take another foreign language (in addition to English) starting in upper secondary.

Arabic is spoken by the small population of Berbers who live in Aikoland.

The national language of the Aháàng people is called Maxatanga, and is spoken in four main dialects based on region. It is primarily an Afro-Pacific language, and is considered Proto-Nguni in its roots with heavy influences from Malagasy, Malaysian, and Arabic,with later additions to the language being primarily French and German. The second most popular language is Malagasy, due to our proximity to Madagascar, and Arabic following that for our proximity to Egypt. Lastly, the most common minority languages spoken are Spanish and French, for the interactions our nations had in the past. The four main dialects of Maxatanga are as follows;

Watari-Maxatanga: the most popular dialect, and the one with the oldest roots, based around strong Sanskrit, Arabic, and Egyptian influences as well as Zulu and Malaysian. It and variants of it are spoken primarily in the northern region of the island, and the islands in close proximity to it.

Braghvat: spoken in the mountains and jungles surrounding, this dialect preserves strong Sanskrit roots and bears the least resemblance to other dialects. It is the third most popular dialect family.

Ngte Wango: The second most popular dialect almost entirely lacks the qualities that linguists associate with any asiatic languages, but retains enough to not be considered a distinct language. It was heavily influenced by German, Dutch and French in the 17th-19th centuries.

Trade Maxatanga: Spoken on the northernmost islands, closest to Yemen, Egypt, India and China. Developed as a business language, remnants of languages from Hebrew to Tagalog have been incorporated into the ultimate pidgin language. Today it is rarely spoken by those other than the islands to which it is native, and well educated merchants.

Countesian was the de-facto language across the seven counties until the 1500's. For all intents and purposes, it is German, with enough distinction in its dialect to be considered a separate language, but mutually intelligible.

However, when Countesia began accepting limited trade from abroad, English found its way into Countesia spread by merchants, traders and sailors. As this took place pre-unification during the period of the Counts, there was little national unity to encourage people to hold onto their language. As a result, only 26% of citizens can speak Countesian fluently, and less than 1% speak it exclusively. The Countesian constitution is written in English, and most road signs in the nation are written entirely in English. It is listed as the co-official language of Countesia, but it is largely a ceremonial gesture.

Other than the two official languages, there are a handful of recognised regional languages in Countesia. The most prominent of these is Kjarnic, the native tongue spoken by 98% of the residents of the Kjarnsviik Archipelago, an overseas province of Countesia. The rest belong to numerous tribal languages spoken in autonomously governed tribal areas within Countesian overseas possessions.

There are many languages in Crossoveria, some of which are native to certain parts while others come from other countries. Crossoveriaanz is the official language of Crossoveria, as it is the language the majority of people speak. However, some anthro communities alongside islands off the coast of Crossoveria speak Animalese, and Simlish is native to an island off the Northern-East coast of the Crossoverian mainland. Other than that, Persian and Arabic are widely spoken.

The most spoken language is Greek, with a variety of dialects. The second most spoken language is Italian (which is a Southern Italian language encompassing Sicilian and Neapolitan) though that also has its own dialects. Albanian is the third language that has official status in a province. Minorities near the borders speak Armenian, Bulgarian, Vlachian, Slavonian, Georgian or Kurdish, and Arab immigrants and Jewish minorities also have brought their language into enclaves.

Te Reo Maori is the official language of Tangatarehua, however until the 19th century the Rehuan version of the Maori language was written using Chinese and Japanese kana, rather than the Roman alphabet used by other Maori speakers. There are also significant dialectical differences between Rehuan Maori and other forms of Maori, although Rehuan Maori remains intelligible by non-Rehuan Maori speakers.

Since 1999, English has been compulsory in all Rehuan primary schools. Around 30% of the population claim some proficiency in English, with 8% claiming fluency.

Japanese is a recognised minority language, being the native tongue of the indigenous Yuri people of Motumakariri. Although the spoken language remains fundamentally the same as non Yurian Japanese, the Yurian version is written solely with the Roman alphabet, having abandoned the use of kana around the same time that it was abandoned by Rehuan Maori.

9% of Rehuans claim fluency in Japanese, although the language is considered endangered in Tangatarehua with fewer Yurian children learning Japanese in favour in Maori. Some local governments have attempted to keep the traditional Yurian language alive, for example parts of Motumakariri and Rangiwhero feature have bilingual signs in both Maori and Japanese.

Languages in the United Kingdom

Postby Great Britain eke Northern Ireland » Sat Mar 05, 2022 5:04 am

The United Kingdom is a multilingual society, where many languages both native and foreign are spoken. Only native languages have any official recognition as minority languages. The official and national language is Modern British English (MBE). The recognised minority languages are Cornish, Guernésiais, Irish Gaelic, Jèrriais, Manx, New Norn, New English, Scots, Scottish Gaelic, Ulster Scots and Welsh. These languages are used alongside MBE in signposts and written/digital announcements and are included in local curriculums within shires/sirs constituting the historical borders of Scotland (Scots, Scottish Gaelic), Wales (Welsh), Cornwall (Cornish) and Northern Ireland (Irish Gaelic, Ulster Scots). New Norn is spoken in the shire of Orkney and the Shetland Isles, and New English is included in some English shires, Manx is spoken on the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands of Guernsey and Jersey are where Guernésiais and Jèrriais are spoken respectively.

Other minority, though unrecognised/unofficial languages, include Polish, Punjabi,Hindustani, Gujarati and more. Angloromani has a de facto recognised status though there is little to no usage of it in official capacities.

Schools in multilingual shires encourage learning the native minority language alongside Modern British English.

Spanish, but written in the aljamiado arabic alphabet, due to the fact that our nation was founded by Moriscos expelled from Spain. Anything religious, however, is done in Arabic and all children are taught the language intensely since first grade at school. French is used for busniess with the rest of Africa, our main trading partner, and for the tourism industry.

Cosnicu citizens are among the most diverse in terms of language in new scalia. Cosnicu language is broken into four groups: Colonial language, Classical language, Conventional language and Engineered language. Shiveki is the most commonly spoken language in Cosnicu

Colonial Language: Colonial language is used to group all the languages that were dominant in the world and that most people would be familiar with. They include, but are not limited to English, Spanish, French, Portugese, Italian, and German.

Classical languages are older languages, usually the focus of historians, scientists, and other academics. They include, but are not limited to Latin, Greek, and other early languages.

Conventional languages are most of the modern spoken languages that exist in New Scalia. They include, but are not limited to Durenzian, Koldern, Shiveki, Apalacian English, and Crevassian as well as most other common languages from pre-collapse times.

Engineered languages are designed specifically by AI to create psychological connections in the speakers brain for various purpose. Cosnicu uses several as has worked on some with Durenzia. In academic circles, there are two designed to stiumlate and encourage use of the scientific method, creative use of mathematics and engineering, and better understanding about how tchnology itself works. In more social situations, languages are used to encourage inclusive thinking, altruism, and to discourage corrupt behavior in leadership roles.

English is the predominant language spoken in the People's Republic of Gunov at 97.8%. The native Gunovian language is spoken at 2.2% due to many ethnic cleansing that the evil British Empire caused. The government of Gunov has tried to encourage the use of the native language but the effort has mostly failed. Despite this the People's Republic of Gunov maintains much of its traditions that survived colonialism.

Sokhainean - a Middle-Persian-derived creole mixed with Swahili, Malagasy, Doianean/Indigenous languages, Somali, Yemeni, Tulu, Dhivehi, Hebrew, English, Dutch, French, Italian, and Portuguese influences; and is the economically dominant and official language of Safiloa and is spoken by nearly 40% of the population as their primary language. Four dialects currently exist - each exhibiting varying levels of linguistic influences and generally being geographically delineated: Coastal, Mountain, River Valley, and Marshland.
Gomeiu (and language derived from Tulu and Dhivehi) is spoken by the Dravidian Pushpambara Jain community in the autonomous region of Maleibidulu-Samberiti. In terms of the relative national population, it's about 6% of Safiloa.
Pinonimic Hebrew - the Pinonim community of Pseudo-Karaite Samaritans speak an archaic form of Hebrew closely related to Teimani Hebrew and mostly live in and around the hilltop city of Chaykarosh.

Various Indigenous (a.k.a. Doianean) Languages
These include: Doian, Wodjimbanian, Valakileian, Kuailanoroan, Marakouan, Mukakerian, Watukuan, Pukeona-Kitirian
This Malayo-Polynesian language family is solely indigenous to Safiloa but shares a linguistic trajectory and history with its distant cousin, Malagasy.
