About Laqabi The Laqabi language (Laqabi: fe'u lakabi) is a language that originated on the Laqab Peninsula in the southern part of the Sarak continent. It is spoken mainly in the nations of Ushon and Umal where it is both the national and official language. It is the native language of the Laqabi people. The language is very important in the native Laqabian religion because Laqabians believe that the gods used it to talk to prophets, giving them the holy scriptures in Laqabi. Thus, it is the liturgical language of the Laqabian Church. Many Laqabi speakers are Laqabians, but not all are.

Prior to becoming a territory of the Sarasque Empire, most people in the Laqab Peninsula spoke Laqabi. After the Sarasque occupation, its schools were required to only teach and speak Sarasque. When the local Laqabi populations won independence and the nations of Ushon and Umal were established, Laqabi underwent a revival in an attempt to encourage the learning and use of Laqabi.

Today, Laqabi is the first official language of the Republics of Ushon and Umal, although in practice Sarasque retains a dominant position in government. It is mandatory that all students be taught in Laqabi from grade levels 1-9.

The Academy of the Laqabi Language is the main institution of the Laqabi language.
