The Millanic language (tongua millanéz) is a constructed language developed and spoken in the Union of Millania and New Granada. The use of the language is regulated by the Eskúbrio Millánez ("College of Millanic"), created in 2018. Before this, the Millanic Language Association served as the the main authority in the Millanic language. The use of the Millanic language is protected by the Millanian Nakjatsa, which names it as the official language of the Empire.

The Millanic language began to be developed in late 2015 as what is now known as Linijkitan or Linijkitan Proto-Millanic, for its use as a code language. Modern Millanic is chiefly based upon the languages of Spanish, Old Sabian, Mandarin and Kepthai. The language has gone through several reforms leading up to its current form, Modern Millanic. The last considerable language reform was implemented by the Millanic Language Association in May 2018, completely removing Middle Millanic (also known as New Millanic), and replacing it with a more sophisticated dictionary, as well as the addition of letters /ñ/ and /ll/.

Dialects

Linijkitan Proto-Millanic

Linijkitan Proto-Millanic (Also known as Linijkitan or Ancient Millanic) is the only known related predecessor to Millanic. It was created as a code language used by a small group of speakers to communicate secretly. It included three sub-dialects; Elder Linijkitan, Satterfieldic Linijkitan, and Tati Linijkitan, each with its own distinct alphabet. Linijkitan widely fell out of use in late 2015.

Early Old Millanic

Early Old Millanic (Posca Linijit) is the earliest form of Millanic. At this time, the Elder Lake Script was created, and the basic linguistic structures of Millanic were conceived. Posca Linijit is often used as a form of "Millanian Creole," as many loan words are used in place of undiscovered words listed in an old dictionary, the only one in existence.

Middle Old Millanic

Middle Old Millanic ( Millanes Oldu) is the first fully created Millanic language. It is widely used by scholars and songwriters, and is used in ceremonial practices. Millanes Oldu is heavily influenced by Latin, Spanish, and Mandarin. It fell out of use when the Pasabrillo Imperial Archive was lost for a period of time, along with old scriptures of Millanic.

Middle Millanic

Middle Millanic (Millánez Progese) is the transitional stage to Modern Millanic. It is also the first dialect that introduced the Modern Lake Script. Millánez Progese is heavily influenced by Old Sabian, and Kepthai. It reinvented the Millanian Language, for the first time giving words roots to signify meaning and grammatical structures and patterns. It was created during the Millanian Renaissance.

Modern Millanic

Modern Millanic (Millánez Noúva) is the current form of Millanic, and is the most developed. It is also the first dialect that introduced the River Script, used in calligraphy and poetry. Millánez is commonly used throughout Millania, and can be found in almost every prefecture. It has also expanded to include speakers from other nations. It is an expanded version of Middle Millanic, and introduced stricter grammatical structure, and new letters to accommodate for local dialects and pronunciations. The Eskubrio Millánez was also founded to oversee development of the Millanic Language.
