The Gallegan language, known as Gallega, is a major language of southwestern Galisea primarily spoken the Kingdom of Gallaca. Gallega is spoken by several million people, with the majority of native speakers hailing from Gallaca. Speakers of Gallega as a second language are most common in the northeastern parts of Galisea, and to a lesser extent in Aeilla. Gallega has been incorporated into the common pidgin language, particularly musical terms, for which Gallaca is famous. Gallega is spoken primarily by ethnic Gallegans, who are largely responsible for the formation of the language over the course of Gallaca's history. The Kingdom of Gallaca maintains official use of Gallega (after converting over to that native tongue over Aeillan three centuries ago with the development of Gallaca's written language), but has little ability to enforce language standards over a wide area. As a result, there a fair number of divergences from "official" Royal Gallega.
World Builders Note: Many words will be written outside this article will be using Latin characters, and this may be supplemented by equivalent alphabet structures where appropriate. The written Gallegan language during its creation made use of the readily available and well known Aeillan alphabet. The fit of the Aeillan alphabet wasn't particularly good, but was servicable, and has been maintained since. When the case system of the Aeillan alphabet was concieved, it was also adopted by the royal academie of Gallega in Galacia, and has official support, but dissemination has been slow.
