Kozakuran was a language spoken by the Kozakuran people, inhabitants of the realm of Kozakura in Kara-Tur.[2][4]

Kozakuran descended from the ancient Han language, as did Koryo and Wa-an, and possibly others.[1][2] Kozakuran and Wa-an were closely related; some considered them only different dialects of the same language. There was perhaps 65% comprehension between the two.[5]

It was considered a sophisticated language, thanks to the high level of literacy in Kozakura and the frequent publication of poetry and plays there. Popular plays regularly introduced new accents and phrases—within a few weeks, a popular new play could change common greetings across the country, which could just as quickly be replaced.[2]
