About Melquian Melquian is an agglutinative language spoken by 8 million people in  Melqui, where it has official status. Its original historic script is a unique, syllable-based script that fits its relatively large vowel inventory. However, in recent years, the use of the Vaniuan script became more widespread. The language is a descendent of  Proto-Amaian, from which 50% of the language’s vocabulary comes from.
