About Koman

Koman (natively: Khomawân; /xomäβä:n/ ) is a Vaniuan language mainly spoken in the eastern parts of the Vaniuan region, the language is officially spoken in  Komania. Koman is the modern form of Nashaghan which served as the lingua franca of the Great Horde, although, heavily influenced by various languages, the language still preserves a lot of native words. Koman itself is considered to be the only language preserving lexicon from the alleged proto-Tahavic and Ghashar languages which might have been spoken between 2000 and 500 years ago, thus explaining the unknown origin of a portion of the vocabulary.
