Classification and Dialects[]

Náttlang [næt.tlang] is a language spoken by the Ocid people on the island of Ketca. It is the official language of the Ocid Confederacy, meaning that all official documents are written in Náttlang. There are three known dialects: Standard Náttlang, Northern Náttlang and Oceshan Náttlang. Differences between these dialects will be noted in the appropriate section.
