The Ashukov Language (Ашуковски Евижња ashukovski yevizhnya [IPA: aʃukovski jeviʒɲa]) is a constructed language, built and primarily spoken in Ashukovo. It is characterized as an a posteriori language due to the fact that it has elements from Slavic languages, mostly from Old Church Slavonic and Old East Slavic. Other influences include Greek (both ancient and modern), and, occasionally, Baltic. It is currently regulated by the ALI, the Ashukov Language Institute, a subsidiary of the University of Ashukovo

Alphabet

The main alphabet of the Ashukov language is a modified version of the Cyrillic alphabet mostly based on the Russian one, with several letters taken from Serbian Cyrillic. Regionally, however, Ashukov uses its own version of the Greek alphabet as well, though the use of it is limited even in the Greek speaking regions of the country.

The Ashukov Cyrillic alphabet is the following:
