About Standard Eastern Lartau Eastern Lartau (EL) is the native language of the south eastern region of The Empire of United Sutzian Kingdoms, or sūtzì naókoō huātaù kootsoò põntsoõ. This grammar will focus on the standardised form, used throughout the Union for administrative, governmental and religious purposes.
Standard Lartau (simply lártaū, or occasionally laõkén lártaū Monk’s Lartau, and SL hereafter) is something of an anomaly, since it simultaneously the lingua franca of the union, and devoid of any native speakers, at least in the form presented here. Grammatically and phonetically, the language has most in common with a slightly archaic, literary form of Keitsoò Lartau, a dialect spoken in the mountainous regions south-west of the capital. Because of its position as a formal and holy language it is particularly impervious to loan words and displays a greatly reduced rate of change, compared to other variants. However, SL is still a spoken language, and as such innovation and development are still present.
Sample of Standard Eastern Lartau[view] Lōtau hān nenqem kàn kënkën kiù haò kàn kem pöntòn kaár lù nör. Pöntzeò hoö tā so ma hoö so dàn, daárdaár ma to tër niär tē Pöntzeò tā kàn xaùkoùn nön to nör.

When darkness settled, they lit the pyres and roasted whole boar and poured their mead. Pontzeo drank not from a cup, but from bowls, finishing an entire keg before other men could find the bottom of their cup.
