Daltan [dæl.tæn] is an Eltean language spoken in the nations of Delvarra, Irriander, Krantschfell, Nevira, Suddesco. It derives its vocabulary from ancient Eltean, with prior descendants assumed to be ancient languages of the Shining South. Splitting from Eltean in ancient times, Daltan has unlike its sister language Altan kept much of the old inflected structure and standardised spelling.
Amongst the many national dialects, large creoles of the language include Oltan and Ortusan.
