About Kalish Rasanian dictionary and translations are OOD rn

Sister language to  Sennic Rasanian. Its name originates from  Alteian galhak or galahak meaning "shining, glittering" and likely links to Kalish people's usage of crimson steel made from Pay-Sáwian iron for jewelry and other components of their traditional clothing.
Serves as lingua franca of Rasan. Native and L2 speakers of fluent or semi-fluent proficiency combined may reach numbers as high as 3 million.

Note: most of eastern varieties lack intervocalic voicing; capital speech features it.
