Bloregian (Blörrö) is the official language of Bloregia and spoken by 90 % of its inhabitants as native language.

Bloregian is an Uletarephian language closely related to the Ugric group but also strongly influenced by Gaermanic languages. Bloregian has an extensive system of cases similar to Ugric languages. On the other hand, prepositions and articles are used in a way that is obviously adopted from Gaermanic languages. Usually Bloregian is portrayed as the only contemporary representative of the Bloric group.
