The Jovatju Language, meaning the "Land-People" language, is a major language in Estreoth and a former lingua franca of Etrothos. It is the predecessor to modern Ethrosian and the successor to Amarthias. Unlike either of those languages, Jovatju has a unique grammatical structure.

Jovatju takes it name from a tribal group that inhabited the southern Vehra in the early portion of the first millennia. Over time, their language was incorporated into the very early Kingdom of Morith due to trade and intermarriage. Because other tribal groups east of the Vehra spoke various dialects of Jovatju, it continued to grow in popularity alongside Amarthian until it eventually superseded it in the third century.

Today, Jovatju continues to be widely spoken in the eastern kingdoms as well as remaining common in Hetrea.

Alphabet

Jovatju has 31 characters in its alphabet. Many of them have no direct comparison in modern Ethrosian and as such are use a combination of modern characters to approximate their sound.
