Latin (latina [laˈtiːna]) also known as Standard Latin, or more commonly as Alban Latin, is a Latinic language spoken principally in Latium and its surrounding areas in the Periclean Sea. It is the national, as well as official, language of Latium, and official language of the sovereign nations of Belfras, Lihnidos, and Sante Reze. The language holds official status within numerous international organizations including the Forum of Nations and the Society of Latin Peoples. Alban Latin is one of the most widely spoke languages in the world, with speakers from throughout Belisaria, parts of Norumbia and Scipia.
Standard Latin is the modern evolution of Old Latin, and is considered to be recognizably the same language. Latin is regulated by the Imperial College of Language, located in Latium. The College has sought to prevent changes to the language, preferring to retain a conservative spoken language to mirror its older literary forms. However, this has not prevented loan words from other languages or a slight shift from the traditional cases grammatical cases, such as occasional use of prepositions in lieu of the genitive case. Due to the influence and presence of the Latin imperial structure over the centuries, Standard Latin has avoided deviations or evolution into wholly unintelligible child-languages such as Garzan, Audonian dialects, and Sydalene.
