Standard Imperial Alteain, the language of the glorious Alteian Empire

A language considered the scholar's speech in the world of Kélas (so basically Latin). Once one of the most widely spoken languages before almost perishing in the Lísic Conquest that made the Empire fall. Alteians were forced to retreat south where  Rashari began to form, slowly securing the southern coast of the continent as well as its position as a de-facto official language of the region. Its "lower" variant, Lower Alteain Register, is the predecessor of  Kalish Rasanian,  Sennic Rasanian and  Mainland Suteiran.

[edit] [view] kéa-Alteiká (Lower Alteian Register)A variant of Alteian considered vulgar by many, mainly people from larger cities and towns. Primarily a language of nomads and explorers who later arrived to Rasan and Suteira, hence the Rasanian and Suteiran languages. Its endonym literally means "small Alteian" (DIM-Alteian).
