The Gammetan Language, mostly but not officially refered to as Kortorisan, the old name of the nation, is a language spoken as a first language by all Gammetans. It is a comprehensive language, in that there are multiple forms of words that would not appear in english. In other words, there are more affixes that can change a word's form. As an example, in English the only forms of words derived from "quick" are "quickly" and "quickness," whereas in Gammetan there would be more than just those, such as "quickibility".
