Kihāmát (Islands, numbered)

The eight islands of Kihāmát.

  • Kihā́mmic is the native language on the main Island of Raibáûī [1], as well as the small northern Rock Island [7] and the Rock of the Church [8]. It is also spoken fluently by almost all other citizens of Kihāmát as a second language. It is the working language of Kihāmát. It is the traditional language of the Kihā́mmic ethnic group.
  • Church Kihā́mmic is used primarily as a liturgical language, though there are a very small number who are native speakers.
  • Kétassic is the native language of the Kétassic people and of most others on the Island of Tōrnáûī [3].
  • Kyánnic is the native language on the Island of Rātəná [4].
  • Lôppic is the native language of the Lôppic people who reside predominantly on the Island of Laāláûī [2].
  • The Fnórric languages are the natives language on both Upper [5] and Lower Fnórāt [6].
  • Gánəmannic was spoken on Raibáûī in the same areas as Engáttic, Engtaffic and Pōllic.
  • Engtáffic was the native language of the Engtáffic people, natives of the Island of Raibáûī. The Engtáffic people are now considered a part of the Kihā́mmic ethnic group.
  • Angáttic was the native language of the Angáttic people, who are related closed to the Engtáffic and also natives of the Island of Raibáûī and a part of the Kihā́mmic ethnic group.

Statūs of the languagesEdit

All of the extant Panlaffic languages, except Church Kihā́mmic, are recognised legally within Kihāmát. The specific statūs are listed below:

Kihā́mmicEdit

The Kihā́mmic language is the official language of the Socialist Republic of Kihāmát, as well as the official regional language of the Island of Raibáûī, Rock Island and the Rock of the Church. It is the most spoken Panlaffic language, with just over five million native speakers and nearly two million others who speak it as a second language as it is taught in all the country's schools to non-native speakers as a second language. Children who do speak it as their first language learn another official regional language instead.

Church Kihā́mmicEdit

Modern Church Kihā́mmic is used primarily as a liturgical language and has no official status in the country, the language is kept alive however by the liturgical use and there are a few people who are brought up as native speakers, mainly by intensively religious parents, the current figure is around 50,000.

KétassicEdit

Kétassic is the official regional language of the Island of Tōrnáûī. Kétassic is the language associated with the synonymous ethnic group, it is the third most spoken Panlaffic language.

KyánnicEdit

Kyánnic is the official regional language of the Island of Rātəná. It is the least spoken official language of Kihāmát.

LôppicEdit

The Lôppic language is the Island of Laāláûī's official language and is associated with the Lôppic ethnic group. It is the most spoken Panlaffic language after Kihā́mmic, with approximately 900,000 native speakers.

FnórricEdit

There are two different varities of Fnórric; Upper and Lower, which are the official regional languages of the corresponding islands. The two are distinct languages though they are mutually intelligible. Together they have about 150,000 less speakers than Kétassic. Upper Fnórric has slightly more speakers than Lower Fnórric.
