A map showing the languages spoken by more than half of the population in Laefevian prefectures.

The official language of Laefevia is Laefêvëši (or Laefevian). It is also the most widely spoken language in the country. The language is natively spoken in three provinces (Irrésken, Ajlísken, and Unnésken), and is the predominant language in Gaþínnel as well. There are six other native languages of Laefevia, which are also recognised as regional languages in the other six provinces.

Apart from the regional languages, there are other minority languages spoken in the country, usually close to the borders with other countries. The biggest recognised minority language is Ohkorian, which is spoken by more than half of the population in the prefecture of Hittowa (ひっととう, Hittotou), province of Taérinel (たいにれんだ, Tainirenda). Ohkorian is also spoken in the other three Taérinel prefectures but to a lesser extend, as well as in both Séttokem prefectures. Another minority language is Emawake (어마와커), which is spoken in the province of Sáelkem (사잍짜헐, Saitlahör) along the border with Riyana. Emawake and the regional language of Sáelekm, Saitlaa, also share the same script.

In southern Laefevia, in the province of Gaþínnel (Gathrínel), two minority languages are spoken: Edievian and Nithalos. However, only Nithalos is recognised as a minority language. The number of speakers of Edievian is too low to be granted official recognition.

In eastern Laefevia, there are two recognised minority languages - Xynder, in the westernmost prefecture of Gútissel province, and Yenä in eastern Gútissel along the border with Yerlan.
