Eurasian (Lingua eurasiatica [lɪŋɡʷa eu'ʙ̪a:sia]) is a Raetic language, belonging to the Indo-Esamiran family. It is related to the language spoken in the Laurentine Republic. Its sister languages are Faliscan and Umbrian, both of which are now considered endangered languages. Eurasian has contributed to many languages, with the Arveyran and Ascanian languages being perhaps the most well known, as well as to the English language. A speaker of Eurasian is known as an Eurasiophone.

Eurasian is the sole official language of the Eurasia, and has communities of speakers worldwide, particularly in New-Zealand and Arveyres. Eurasian is used in medicine and science as an educated language, and is often used in mottoes and phraseology. The Catholic Church makes frequent use of it as well. Alongside English, it is one of the principal diplomatic languages in the world.

History

The Eurasian is a Raetic language, descending from the ancient Roma people in ancient Solvinius. It was originally spoken solely in the lands around Julium, but spread throughout the Eurasian archipelago and eventually became the dominant language in Eurasia. The modern form of Eurasian spoken throughout Eurasia is not entirely dissimilar from the original language, although there have been dialectical shifts in the provinces.

Phonology

There are a large amount of regional Eurasian accents, owing to the shear expanse of the Eurasian Empire, but the standardized version, called "Urban-Eurasian", which is the variant spoken in Julium. Most learners of Eurasian learn the Urban variant, but it is not uncommon for learners in nations closer to other dialects to learn that dialect instead.

  • There are six vowels in Eurasian, /a/, /e/, /i/, /e/, /o/, /u/, and /y/. Y is usually in borrowed words.
