Vallian is an extinct language that was spoken by the Old Florescentians until the XVIII century when it was supplanted by the modern Florescentian language that endues to the present day.

A Romantish language, Vallian was nevertheless heavily influenced by language contact with the surrounding Low Gaermanic languages such as ancestors of modern Beltish and Gaerman. As a result, up a third of the vocabulary of Vallian can be traced back to these neighbouring languages.
