This page covers the Kagan Language, it's 4 Proto Stages, the Etiopian Languages, the Emigre Kagan Languages, the Archaic Kagan Languages, Early & Modern Kengan, the Kaga Languages, & all other Kagan Languages.
Kagan, the ancient language.Edit
Kagan was the ruling language of Kaga, a powerful, Hindu republic situated on the upper Congo River in Africa.
The Proto-Kagan languages & the origin myth.Edit
According to Kagan myth, the republic was founded by sailers from a far away land, leaded by a man named Gauri Badarda. The myth also credits Gauri to being the creator of the language. According to myth, he original made three varients of his native tongue, each more different from the original than the last, before settleing with Kagan as his chosen language for his new country. The names he originally cave to these languages are unknown, as they are unattested.
There was no text to verifie these claims, but the language, dispite it's strong phonalgic differences, bares some simularities with Dravidian &, even more so, Japanese. To understand the how these differences occured, we must understand the nature of Gauri's language crafting skills. The reconstruction of Gauri's three other languages (some say there where four, but this goes against the myth) is deminstrated with the Proto-Kagan Languages.
Stage 1 Proto-Kagan was the first. It was mostly based on Japanese, with some Sanskrit influences. It was spoken only for a short time before Gauri's crew complained that the language was too similar to their own tongue & was unnaturally complex verb system. Gauri would later resolve these problems with Stage 2 Proto-Kagan, which was made later when Gauri & his followers finished their pilgrumage to Bali. Here, Gauri tried incorperating Balinese & Malay influence to the language. He also replaced numerous consonant sounds with other consonant sounds, a sound shift, in a matter that is unusual. Stage 2 Proto-Kagan continued to be spoken untill Gauri's pilgrumage to India. It is here he created Stage 3 Proto-Kagan, which is heavily influenced by Dravidian languages as well as Sinhala. Stage 3 Proto Kagan also has unusual soundshift, but this one changed the vowels.
Stage 4 Proto-Kagan, which some Kengan linguists doubt, was made in what is now Tanzania. Linguists recreate Stage 4 Proto-Kagan to meke the possible explenation for the Etiopian Kagan Languages, the poorly attested Gindanese language, & a few Bantu & Nilo-Saharan influences found in Kagan that bare similarities with such languages as Swahili & Masai.
Early & Modern KenganEdit
When Stivanatism was preached into the republic, Kaga started to devide into multible societies, & it's understandible why. Most of the Hindu Kagans opposed the Stivanatist, fearcely. But the Stivanatist wheren't interested with converting the common, instead they preached to rich & royal of the nation. By the end of the so called "Kagan times," the higher up was successfully converted & the government diclared Stivanatism the official religion. This action upsetted many. Many revolts occured. Eventually Kaga was divided into several nations, the minor Hindu nations along the outskirts of the former Kagan Republic, & the more powerful Stivanatist Kengan Empire.
Early Kengan, sometimes reffered to as middle Kagan, was heavily influenced by Stivantian, the language of Stivanatism, & also by indigenous Bantu Languages. Kengan even borrowed the complex noun prefix system of Bantu.
By around the late 1800's, a civil war occured within Kenga, the aftermath of which resulted in the creation of the Democratic Republic of Kenga, the end of the Kengan Empire, & the establishment of peace among all Kagan nations. Shortly after, it was found that Kagan, & thus Kengan as well, was related to Japanese. With the rising interest into heritege roots, Kengan went threw large scale vocabulary changes, in taking several Japanese words (albeit, in a slightly different form) into the language.
The Kaga LanguagesEdit
The Kaga Languages are only as old as Modern Kengan. They derived from Early Kengan, just as Modern Kangan did, but these languages went even further. In addition of borrowing Japanese words, they also borrowed some Japanenes grammatical features & all Stivantian words where taken away. The reason behind this may have to do with that these languages are spoken by peoples who have been converted to other faiths. (When the Empire fell, freedom of worship was established & many missionary attemps by many faiths from around the world took advantage.)

Archaic Kagan LanguagesEdit
These languages aren't derectly related each other more so than they do to with any other Kagan Language, but they all have somethings in common. They've retained much of the same Grammatical rules have scarce outsider influences. Gindanese might belong here.
Dembanguan - Kagan
Bogindan - Kagan
Nessemese - Kagan
Kakari - Kagan
Skosissic - Kagan
Jigaroan - Kagan
Yigigomadan - Kagan
The Emigre Kagan LanguagesEdit
When the empire was established, most Kagans where dispatched to the outskirts of Kagan territory, or even a little bit further. But some Kagans went even further by leaving the continent. The lack of comunication with other Kagan languages, & continuous influence by an outsider makes these languages the most innovative of all Kagan languages.

-Grondelic is spoken in England.
Goidelic - Kagan/Hindi/Bhojpuri/other Indo-Aryan languages.

Other Kagan LanguagesEdit
There are a large abundance of other Kagan languages, many of which little work has been made to further classify them. Gindanese might belong here.

In recent years, some attemps to get the old Kagan language back to being a spoken languages has gotten mainstream attention within Kenga & some other Kagan nations. No success has been made yet out side of literacy.
The Etiopian LanguagesEdit
Perhaps the most divergeant variety of all Kagan languages is the Etiopian Languages spoken in Ethiopia. They are among the most bizarre of all Kagan Languages in the field of reconstruction. Some linguists have argued that the Etiopian languages did not diverge from Kagan but rather from Stage 4 Proto-Kagan. This has yet to be proven.

Gindanese is a poorly attested language spoken in what is now western Tanzania. It is thought be a Kagan language, though some argue it's actually an Archaic Kagan Language. Still some other linguists often consider Gindanese to not be a daughter language of Kagan but a sister language, descendent of Stage 4 Proto Kagan.
