'''{{PAGENAME}}''' (/ˈnɑːkwiən/ ''NAH-kwee-ən'') is a classical language of Tricin which served as the working language of Ancient [[Verse:Tricin/Naquiz|Naquiz]], or the Naquian empire. It is a Quame language with a Nāhuatl, Latin and Proto-Germanic and Nahuatl flavor. It has a rich body of literature, and is notable for being the language with the first extensive grammatical treatise in history. It is related to [[Thensarian]], a Talman classical language.

====Phonotactics====
A word may not end in a consonant cluster; usually an epenthetic vowel ''ιi'' is inserted to resolve a consonant cluster.
The following geminates are allowed: /mː nː lː jː sː ʃː pː tː kː kwː tsː tɬː tʃː tʼː kʼː tsʼː tɬʼː tʃʼː/. Geminates are common, often resulting from older rC clusters.
Nasal-stop clusters are allowed.
 
The following initial clusters are allowed:
*'''tr tzr txr cr qur thr tzhr txhr chr quhr'''
*'''zt ztz ztł ztx zc zqu'''
