The Argeyazic languages are a language family spoken primarily in the vicinity of Argeyaz Bay in western Ekuosia. The surviving members of the family are Algaz, spoken in the Algazi Union and in Algazi communities abroad, and several dialects of Hemeshi, spoken in Fyevan, Orzunia, Saovia, and Srojosia.

History

Proto-Argeyazic

In 1979, Algazi archeologist Suyan İvadh am-Jir identified the Proto-Argeyazic language with the late Bronze Age Teset culture of the western Algazi Union and southern Letzia; the Teset Theory has since become accepted by most scholars studying the ancient Argeyaz region, though a large minority continue to back the earlier Peninsular Origin Theory.
