The Craitish language (Craitish: Cräitelandóspul /kreɪtɛ'lændɔspʊl/) is a conlang originating from and spoken in Craitland, where it has official status.

Craitish is primarily influenced by English, and has previously been described as a dialect thereof despite little mutual intelligibility, but also takes some vocabulary and grammar influences from French, Welsh and Swedish.

Craitish is written using the Latin alphabet, with the addition of six letters formed by diacritic marks.

Alphabet

Craitish uses 32 letters; thirty of which are utilised regularly within written Craitish, with two only having usage for particular grammatical instances. These two letters; ń and ś are not included as a part of the full Craitish alphabet, instead being considered punctuation.
