Tlukerian (Tḷugeri, /t͡ɬʼɯᵝkeɾi/) is one of the Tlukeric languages native to the Tlukerian archipelago. It is mainly spoken in Tlukeria, where it functions as the main lingua franca for the nation, as well as in small minorities scattered in Dekkuvia and Farmosh. The language is written in the Tlukeric script, native to the islands and thought to have been either a descendant of the Daleic script or strongly influenced by her descendants.
