Wu-haltai was a language spoken by the Wu-haltai people of the Ama Basin. It was one of the chief languages of the region.[3][4][note 1]

Related languagesEdit

Wu-haltai was related to Issacortae and Pazruki, other languages in the Amaese languages group.[1][2]

As with the other Amaese languages, Wu-haltai was considered to be "only vaguely related" to the Eastern Imaskari languages group.[1]

The Wu-haltai tongue had many points in common with the language of the ogre magi,[3] presumably acquired from the ogre tribes of the region.[4]

DialectsEdit

It comprised a family of dialects descending from a common ancestral tongue. The Wu-haltai nation had no writing or centralization, so the language developed independently of the other nations.[4] In fact, the Wu-haltai people had no written language.[5]

NotesEdit

  1. Only the Issacortae and Pazruki languages are specified as part of the Amaese languages group. It is assumed that the language of the Wu-haltai people, also indigenous to the Ama Basin and sharing cultural similarities with the Issacortae and Pazruki, is also a part of the Amaese languages group.
