Crecanian is the main language of the Crescanian Confederacy, and is the largest language among all the Crescanian peoples, as the conquered species have been in the Confederacy long enough to start forgetting their own languages.

Crescanian, or Crescaniei as they call the language themselves, is spoke in a very simple manner. Unlike English for example, Crescanian most often uses the same word for every situation. This means that while English uses words as "I" and "Me" in different circumstances, Crescanian always use the word "Im", which is pronounced the way it is written and not to be mistaken for the English "I'm".

Crescanian also tends to spell words the same way they are pronounced. For example, the English word "One" would be spelled "Wan" and "You" would be spelled "Ju".


Crescanian Alphabet.png

The Crescanian alphabet is made up of 25 letters, with 19 consonants and 6 vowels, as well as 13 umlauts of existing letters. The modern Crescanian alphabet is relatively new, having been designed merely a few hundred years ago with mainly computerized writing in mind, with each symbol being of equal size and taking up an equal amount of space. It was also designed to be easy to learn and to write, in order to ease the cultural unification which was at that time taking place on Cusorea, and is now taking place around the Crescanian empire. Today the Crescanian alphabet is the official alphabet of all Crescanian languages, including all languages belonging to Crescanian subject species, such as the enormously common Salchissan language Mando'a.


Crescanian counting is based on 8, which may have its roots in Croiz having 8 fingers. This has been known to cause confusion among other species.
