The Kiryeb language (in Kiryeb An-kiryeb ['aŋkirjɛb]) is a Deonic language, of the northern branch. Spoken natively by more than two hundred million people in Carabaea alone and many millions more across Istheusia in addition, it ranks second in terms of native speakers, and is overall the fourth most widely spoken tongue.

The most notable characteristic of Kiryeb is its consonantal nature, where groups of consonants indicate generic concepts or categories, while getting their specific meanings from various vowels in different arrangements. E.g. f-k-n indicates the concept of running; from it are derived fikin "runner", fakāna "runners" and fakun "to run", among many other possible forms.
