The Pristinian language (As d-Tanᵹa nā h-Uḃınn; German: Pristinische Sprache; Ripuarian: Pristeenische Sprôch) is a constructed language spoken in Pristinia. It is classified as a Celtic language, though it is also influenced by the Ripuarian, German and French languages.

Name

The Pristinian language is referred to as the Tanᵹa nā h-Uḃınn, the "language of the Ubians", or simply Uḃınıge, "Ubian". This is in reference to the Celtic tribe of the Ubians (misidentified as a Germanic tribe by the Romans) who lived in the area today controlled by Pristinia.
