About Vosan A member of the Jiuzemic branch of Western Vaniuan, along with  Hitagi, spoken by the residents of Vosan. Also related to  Khezian, and more distantly  Balak.

Oops, I added the words to CWS. Here's the spreadsheet dictionary though, just so you can have more information.

Here's a grammar document (WIP) for those interested in looking closer at how the language functions.

Sample of Vosan[view] ¿Gere aguna bezas?. U, ¡zus bes aguêm!.

"ROAD WORK AHEAD"? Uh, yeah, I sure hope it does!
