About Kahaz Kahaz (natively: Kahazh, IPA: kahad͡ʑ)is a Darathian language spoken mainly in the island of Saladaria (also known as "Kahaz Yiräl"), a large island with several climates. It is the only surviving language of the Eastern branch of the Darathian languages and it demonstrates poor mutual intelligibility in various degrees, as it has diverged considerably due to its location and isolation from other related languages of the family. Kahaz is only agglutinative and follows mainly a svo order.

The language is written only with the Thevonic script which is considered as an alphabet that can simultaneously be used as an abugida and has a variety of archaic features.
