About Classical Batus Batus is a synthetic language that is spoken westwards of the Greater Batus delta on the continent of Etoe. It is the westernmost spoken language on the continent of Etoe, and speakers of this language are not related to any other group of language speakers, thus making it a language isolate. Batus was inspired primarily by Indonesian's phonology and Mongolian's morphosyntactic alignment.
