Balak is a member of the Vaniuan family from the Kashisan sub-group of Eastern Vaniuan languages, spoken in present-day Balakia and surrounding nations. The language itself is distinguished by its moderately agglutinative typology and large substratum of Khamaian loanwords, along with whistled sibilants, a feature not present in any other Vaniuan language and shared only with Amaian.
