Cananganamese (Also called Canamic or Esmilly), is an Asuranesian language spoken predominantly in Cananganam and is spoken by a minority in Lhavres. It is the local prestige of Cananganam, having its place within classical nobility into today's Kuulist government promoting its use, where in recent years the Telibe dialect has seen an increase in use and standardization.
Most urban varieties of Cananganamese undergo what's locally defined as ḍajđe (Rising), where the zero-vowel /ə̯/ is typically pronounced as [ɪ], though other variations of this include [ʊ] and [e]. Commonly nasalization also occurs in these dialects though this is almost entirely allophonic with some exceptions which vary by dialect.
Other common features include reducing of the alveolar flap into a dental approximant as shown in the Telibe dialect:
nekkuren "Kav" /nəˈkːuˑɾən/ → [nɪˈkːuð̞ɪ̃]
rumame "(1SG.MASC) would have launched..." /ˌɾuˑˈmæˑmə/ → [ˌð̞uˑˈmɐ̃w̃]
