Bässani is an inland Westerlander language, firmly part of the Westerlander clade of the Assaric languages. It is a Northern Westerlander language, closely related to its neighbours, Bäladiri and Irmunnari.
Bässani is a moderately inflecting, primarily agglutinating language — as with the rest of the Westerlander languages — with a soft and synchronically mostly inert accentual system. Most of Bässani's inflectional system is fairly transparent, lacking the complexities introduced in the development of more northern varieties under the influence of lowlander speeches. As one of the more inland Westerlander languages, Bässani has come under the influence of herder tongues only by proxy — primarily through its cousin, Bäladiri.
The phonology of Bässani is typical of a northern Westerlander language, rich in consonants and vowels.
