About Gomain xwEroIT AnRUSin

Gomain (ķweroiţ Anr̂üšin “Anhrushite language” to speakers of the standard dialect and in former Anhrushite colonies; ķweroiţ Gomain “language of the Gomai clan” to other native speakers in Anhrush proper) is a language of the Ham-Hamic branch of the Yavian family, which covers all but the northwestern reaches of the continent of Zasháve. It is therefore closely related to Hagen, less closely related to Argollan and Sollein, and still further removed from the languages of the Saruyi and Limre cultural spheres. Although its core speakers have always referred to it as Anhrushite, it helps to distinguish the language of the past 1,600 years from its most immediate ancestor, also called Anhrushite. The Anhrushite language was itself spoken from about the time of Anhrush City’s settlement 4,000 years ago until the end of the Empire of Anhrush, when it evolved into Gomain and its closest relatives.

Gomain is the first language of over 940 million šëḑweiŋa, the humanoid inhabitants of the planet known in Gomain as Askath. It is the national language of the Third Republic of Anhrush, the planet’s chief superpower, as well as of several smaller nations which were originally Anhrushite colonies. In addition, Gomain is a global lingua franca, and so about two billion šëḑweiŋa speak it as a second language.
