Pazruki, also called Pazruk, was a language spoken by the Pazruki of the Ama Basin. It was one of the chief languages of the region.[3] [1][2][4][5]

Related languagesEdit

Pazruki was related to Issacortae and Wu-haltai, other languages in the Amaese languages group.[1][2]

As with the other Amaese languages, Pazruki was considered to be "only vaguely related" to the Eastern Imaskari languages group.[1]


It comprised a family of dialects descending from a common ancestral tongue. The Pazruki nation had little writing or centralization, so the language developed independently of the other nations.[5] The two most prominent dialects were Tchaltin-Pazruk and Erla-Pazruk.[3][5]


The Pazruki tongue was spoken largely by the Pazruki nation, who dwelled in the northern Koryaz Mountains. Other native speakers were the Pazruki-descended clans who inhabited the forests to the east and the forested hills lying further north.[6]


A legendary race that ruled the land in ancient times was known as the Maraloi, which meant "ancient lords" in Pazruki.[6]
