About Wixi Even though Wixi is the language spoken by the the modern Wixi people, yet it is an ancient language that has been preserved for nearly a thousand years. This is the official, standard literary form of the language that has been preserved, and differs in some ways from common speech.

It, as well as  Ozab and Kanterian, make up the remainder of the disputed Ozab-Wixi branch of Indo-European languages, with Old Ozab bearing more resemblance to modern Wixi than to modern Ozab or Kanterian. The reason why the language family is disputed is because it is unknown whether the two separate branches are related or rather just influenced each other.
