Xanian (Вакә Жакюмәрӣ, Vâka Xâkömarī, /vɐka ʒɐkɵmaɹɪ/) is the language of the Xanian people, the native inhabitants of Zhakar. It is the official language of the Xanian Empire, with more than two billion known speakers.
Xanian is a highly stressed language, with emphasize on the first or second syllables of a short word, or first and middle syllables of a longer word, typically regarded as the norm. The stress on words with Xanian is often considered similar to the stressing of words in the English and Latin, though Xanian words will have diacritic marks to indicate when stress on a particular syllable is required, much as with the accents in Latin and Romance languages. With regards to rhythm, Xanian is a stress-timed language, with stressed and unstressed syllables carrying equal weight in a word though the stressed portion may be shorter than the unstressed portion in letter length, but longer when voiced.
