About Belestáni Belestáni is a minority language that is spoken in southeastern Katrashtan. It is a far-off relative of Katrashtani, and the latter's alphabet is said to derive from the former's. Belestani has a wider range of phonemes, and its back vowels sound nasal (even though they have no noses!). It is also a fusional language, with 3 genders, 5 cases, and 4 tenses.
