The Emrit Language (EM, in Emrit: Qatashły ezh'Emrit, IPA: xat̞aʃwɨ ɛʒɛmərit̞), is a Kan-Kaijin language spoken by approximately 98,573,712 native speakers primarily in the Korat region of Western Assai, where it is the official language in over ten countries. Closely related to the Assai Language, Emrit features a number of distinctive phonological and grammatical features from its southern neighbor produced as a result of the mixed ethnic and cultural heritage of the Korat itself, having seen repeated invasion by a number of distinct and unrelated ethnic and linguistic groups. As such, Emrit as it is spoken today is a very diverse language and exhibits some of the greatest dialectal variation in any language of Western Assai, with speakers from opposite ends of the Sy-Korati Emrit Dialect Continuum finding it virtually impossible to understand one another.
