The Catanese language ("Catanès" in Catanese) is an Uletarephian/Romantish language named for its origins in Catania, in what is southern of Castellán. It is a co-official language of the Castellanese regions of Catania and Edetania (where the language is known as Edetanese). It is also the official language of the Adarian state of Canalia.

Catanese evolved from several dialects of Romantian.
