Naican was a language in the Imaskari languages group,[1] spoken in the Hordelands.[2]


Naican had round and broad vowel sounds with rolled R sounds. Many of its consonant sounds were harsh, such as C and K. The sound of L was heavily aspirated. Its grammar had a subject–object–verb order.[3]


This tongue was spoken by the nomadic Naican tribe.[2]


Naican did not have a written form.[1]


It was a hybrid language derived from both the Northern and Southern Imaskari language groups.[2][1] It was influenced by the empire of Raumathar and also the language of Muhjuri.[2]
