Species Human/humanoid
About Lötuede Spoken mostly in the Nötutë where it is the one of two official languages, the other being valley sign. Has a few scattered bilingual speakers in St Monica and abroad, but never enough to sustain a second generation of speakers. Most of its vocabulary is of french origin, as the language is descended from a french based pidgin used in Yoruba land in the 1700s, when the population of Nötutë became separated from the rest of their peers by stumbling into what is essentially the spirit world.

Has a manually coded form distinct from Valley Sign (Falee Ede).
