General information[]

Qatano (Qatanà) is a Conlang from the Vergalic Branch. So far, it is the only known Vergalic Language. In general, the language has some unique characters and sounds. There are some accented letters which create their own sounds. The language has 40 letters in the Qatano Alphabet, consisting of the 26 English alphabet + an additional 14 accented characters which either "emphasise" their words or produce their own unique sound.

It is furthermore important to note that, the language has strong roots of French, Spanish, Norwegian and Middle English. The language is heavily influenced by Old-Middle-Modern English, as well as French and a few Slavic words. The language is very different to French, however the language is influenced by it, and developed using Middle English, Spanish and Portuguese (with additional slavic letters).
