Rasha (natively: Raşahon [rəˈʂɑ̃õ]) is an Eastern Vaniuan language, specifically part of the Kashisan sub-branch, spoken primarily in the autonomous Principality of Rashtun in northern  Gushlia, where it is an official regional language. The language has been considerably influenced both by Amaian languages and by Koman, possessing a sizable quantity of loan words from each but still preserving lots of native words. Rasha is mutually intelligible with certain regional varieties of  Gushli, but not the standard language.

Rasha is notable among Vaniuan languages for its phonemic nasal vowels and weight-based stress system, as well as its use of stative verbs as opposed to true adjectives, a feature shared by the Amaian languages, as well as other languages of the Kashisan subbranch such as  Balak and  Western Kaatian.
