About Sarian The Sarian language ("skarihe" or "iadus skariher") is the main language spoken in Gaskarel by around 50 million people. It has many various dialects, some of which (particularly Kamiskihe) are sometimes considered to be separate languages, although for the most part mutually intelligible with standard Sarian. The language itself is part of a very small language family due to the isolation of Gaskarel and surrounding lands within the ocean. The other two living languages in the group are Hefnihe, spoken on the island of Hefni very close to the west coast of Gaskarel, and 'Isnihe, spoken on the island of Isni a few hundred kilometres to the south.

Main points to note:
- The language has 9 vowel phonemes and 21 consonant phonemes.
- The general word order is SOV, with sentences being strictly verb final.
- It is quite synthetic, with a lot of compounding in nouns, and sometimes due to derivation also in verbs.
