The Jertaiw language is a member of the Jertaiw-Fimean language family. It is spoken on the planet Taiwih in the north-eastern part of the Occidental Islands, and while quite distant to other Fimean languages, it is the most widely spoken.

Classification and DialectsEdit

The Jertaiw-Fimean language family spreads across almost three quarters of the planet Taiwih, and has over 122 million speakers of which 70 million speak Jertaiw. While one dialect predominates in the media, due to isolation there is a mentality of different-dialect-in-every-village. Only the standard dialect is given here.
