The Birgesh language (Birgesh: Birgeş Dili or Birgçe) is a conlang originating from and spoken in Birgeshir.

The Birgesh language sounds like the Turkic and East Slavic languages because many words originate from them, but its grammar is mostly different. Starting from 2015, the Birgesh language also adopted ancient Egyptian loanwords.
