About Sarasque The Sarasque language (Lasarask), also referred to as the Loric or the Sarasque Loric language, is unrelated to the other languages of South America and indeed, as a language isolate, to any other known living language. Sarasque is a Sarak language of the Sarak-Loric language family originating in the modern-day Federation of United Sarasque Republics and historically spoken by the Sarasque people. Sarasque is spoken as a first language by a large number of Sarasque people but is spoken more widely as a second language by a larger group of non-native speakers.

Sarasque enjoys constitutional status as the national and first official language of the Federation of United Sarasque Republics and is an officially recognized minority language in Brazil and Venezuela. The public body Bundeńaś tarą Lasaraską (Sarasque pronunciation,
[ˈbundeɲaʃ tarɔ ˈlazaraskɔ], "Sarasque Institute"; often abbreviated to BtąL) is responsible for the promotion of the language throughout the Federation.

Sarasque is spoken in South America, especially in the Federation of United Sarasque Republics (146,000 first-language speakers). It is also spoken in Venezuela (20,000 speakers), Brazil (14,100 speakers), Colombia (2,600 speakers), and the US, particularly in Florida, where it is spoken from Miami to Orlando and even Jacksonville.
