Introduction to the Kotanian language

Kotane, or Kotanian, is the language spoken in Kota, the southern half of Veòn, one of the two continents of the planet Ilya. Kotanian is a lingua franca: it is spoken by all of the 250 million inhabitants of Kota (and in various degrees of fluency by at least twice as much inhabitants of other parts of Ilya), but it is almost nobody's mothertongue.

The Kotanian language is guarded by the Kotanian Linguistic Institute of the Kotanian Language (KLI). This introduction to the Kotanian language describes the phonology, morphology and syntax based on the official KLI guidelines, and gives a brief overview of the semantics and language use.
