Terminian is a Termic language mainly spoken in northwest Ekuosia and southeast Akulanen. It is the most widely spoken language in Cerman and Amerhan, and is an official language in several other countries, including Bosato and Arawahl. Terminian is the most widely spoken of the Ngerupic language family, with an estimated 160 million native speakers worldwide, as well as a large amount of L2 speakers due to the historical influence of the Terminian Empire and Three Kingdoms. It is one of the 22 official languages of the Ekuosian Union.

Due to the limited intelligibility between certain varieties of Terminian, as well as the lack of an undisputed, scientific difference between a "dialect" and a "language", some Terminian varieties (e.g. Proper Amerhani or Utoyyi) are alternatively referred to as "languages" and "dialects".
