The Ulitan language family is a language family of many languages of the Amutet. The word "Ulitan" means "north" in the Classical Uraki language, as it is thought that Ulitan-speaking peoples were from Northern Amutet.

Ulitan languages used to be a major language family in the Amutet continent, but after the rise of the Amutetikam-speaking kingdom 'Agjʊlεkh, Ulitan languages has become much less prominent in Amutet. Faloch is one of the only languages that has not declined due to the Amutetikam Languages

Grammatical featuresEdit

Northland Ulitan languages and Arctic Ulitan languages are analytic; while Eastern Ulitan languages and many Western Ulitan languages are more synthetic.

It is known that except for Old Uraki and its descendants(Classical Uraki, Modern Uraki and Continental Uraki)(Old Uraki and its descendants have a SVO word order, Continental Uraki also developed a VSO word order) and several south Fish River languages(south Fish River languages have an CP-V2, SOV word order), all Ulitan languages have a pretty rigid SOV word order; moreover, except for Old Uraki and its descendants(Classical Uraki, Modern Uraki and Continental Uraki), and Fish River languages, all Ulitan languages use postpositions rather than prepositions, Old Uraki and its descendants(Classical Uraki, Modern Uraki and Continental Uraki), and Fish River languages are syntactical outliers of Ulitan languages in that they use prepositions.
