Neragese is a X language of the Oranish language family originally spoken by the people of Neragon. The language is named after the X, one of the X that migrated to Neragon from Oranland.


The phonetics and phonology of the Neragese language differ from one dialect to another, usually without interfering with mutual communication. Phonological variation affects the inventory of phonemes (i.e. speech sounds that distinguish meaning), and phonetic variation consists in differences in pronunciation of the phonemes.


Most Neragese dialects share the same 25 consonant phonemes. The consonant inventory shown below is valid for Domican, and for Standard Neragese.
