Musogradian Language

The Musogradian language is of Slavic origin. Due to historic developments, it contains elements from several other Slavic languages and has got a relatively simple structure. Its name has varied over time - originally it was called Musogradian, later Musanian. But as both terms are politically loaded, "Musogradian" focussing on the city of Musograd and "Musanian" covering all states of the Federated Micronations of Musania, Musogradian linguists have finally decided to call it "Musosloviansk" to emphasize its Slavic origins, which distinguishes it from the other languages spoken in the Federated Micronations.

The name "Musosloviansk" has also been selected because the language is related to "Medzusloviansk" , also called "Medzusloviansky jezic", "Interslavic" or in a simplified version "Slovianto" . Its vocabulary is similar, although also containing words adopted from other languages. Some words have a different spelling, e.g. "dershowo" instead of "drzava" (state).

Musosloviansk is not the only language spoken in the Musogradian state, which is now officially called "Dershowo Unija tal Musograd" - "Union State of Musograd". In the South, in Kosnice, English is the official language, although Musosloviansk is widely spoken, and in the region east of the Goralni Mountains, Balanda, a Germanic language, is spoken by a large part of the population, although it is not an official language.

Musosloviansk is also spoken in other states of the Federated Micronations, e.g. in the larger cities of the Balanda Republic, where it has got a semi-official status. In the Republic of Capricornia, it is not an official language but also widely understood. Only in the two southern states, with their Latin / Arab based languages, it is rarely used.
