Amëtaran is a Illyrian language of the Indo-European language family, the native language of the Amëtarans, and the co-official language of Ametara. It is genetically & linguistically related to Albanian but closely related to Phrygian. It is one of the oldest known Indo-European languages alongside Greek and Latin with first attestation dated from 430 BCE. It is written with either an Albanian-based Latin script, Cyrillic or their own unique script, the Ametaran alphabet.

The ancestors of the Ametarans lived in the area now known as the Bosphorus strait that connects Mainland Europe with Western Asia. They moved to present-day Macedonia and from there, started one of the first Indo-European speaking nations in Europe with the kingdom of Kochani that lasted from the 11th century BCE until the 5th century BCE when the Macedons invaded their land. The proto-Ametaran language was probably influenced by a host of other languages, Indo-European or not, including Greek itself. The language's first attestation was from a stele written on a leaf which describes an Kochanian landlord's deal with the "men from far below" which were the Greeks. It was probably written in the Old Italic script.
