Elite Vamapaskian is a language spoken by the Vamapaskians as lingua franca.

General informationEdit

Elite Vamapaskian is a conlang written for a future series of novels I am writing. In context, Elite Vamapaskian is spoken around 5000 BC in the Fertile Crescent by a group of tribes called the Vamapaskians as a lingua franca, because it was the language spoken by the most powerful tribe of them all.
