About Proto-Kettic Proto-Kettic is the reconstructed ancestor of all Kettic languages. Having been reconstructed by mainly Ket linguists using Old Ket texts (oldest attested Kettic language), this proto-language resembles Ket more closely than other Kettic languages like Lagu or Shì, which have mostly been used to clear up confusions that came up while reconstructing the language. Still, this reconstruction remains as the most widely accepted one, by both linguists inside or outside the Ket Kuzhong.
