The Breti language (farang au Breti) is a language spoken by the Breti civilisation in the planet known as Colony A1 when it was first found by humans. The Bretis therefore live alongside other such civilisations as ceorzas and the Ku'mori. The Bretis resemble various mustelids like weasels and stoats. The Bretis don't have a tail since they are normally cut at an early age, a tradition introduced by king Kasunga Re. rashumbi (12.). The ceorzas also adopted this tradition. Only the Ku'mori still keeps their tails to this day.

The Breti language uses a common SVO word order although during the time of the kings, the form of the language using OSV order was commonplace.
The Bretis traditionally use a base-12 number system. The numbers 1-11 are all derived from an animal the Bretis regard as important. The numerals derive from the native Breti word for that animal with the addition of the suffix -i. The numeral 12 is the word the Breti's use to refer to their planet, again with the addition of the -i suffix. Numbers higher than twelve are marked as 12 followed by the word kra (to) and the relevant number. Thus 13 is marked as 12-to-1. When you reach 23, the 12 is changed to 13 (12 wasi (and) 1) and the process repeats itself. Thus 24 is marked as 12-and-1-to-2. Hundreds adds an extra digit, known as the place number and is placed after the main digit with the addition of the word sive (with). Thus for example the number 103 is marked as 12-to-1-with-1 and 205 is 12-and-1-to-3-with-2. Thousands have 2 place numbers and so on. This system might look complex but with enough practise, you will get the hang of it. The Bretis don't use the number zero but when it's presence needs to be conveyed, the word jaib (nothing) is used. Nowadays many Bretis have started using the decimal system which also includes the number zero and the numbers are pronounced one at a time. For example, the number 2312 is pronounced as firokai-kampasarei-makasevi-firokai.
