The Termic languages are a branch of the Ngerupic languages, which includes the widely spoken Ngerupic language, Terminian. The Termic languages are the only Ngerupic family native to Ekuosia, and are highly divergent in both phonology and structure from other Ngerupic languages. The Termic languages range in size from Terminian, with over 300 million speakers worldwide, to beleaguered minority languages such as Bilemã with approximately 100 speakers.
