Uyseʔ [uj ˈsɛʔ] is the national language of Uytai and the lingua franca of all southern Arcél. It belongs to the Uyseʔic language family.

It's known to be a monosyllabic and head-final language. Its roots follow the structure C+(r,l,w,y)+V+(u,i)+(ʔ,m,n,l,r,t). The vowels of Uyseʔ are a e i o u. The consonants are p t k ʔ ph th kh f s h ħ ts m n ny l r w y. Stress is typically on the last syllable.

Some Uyseʔ loanwords, particularly related to exotic goods imported from Arcél, have entered Verdurian, such as čai 'tea' from tsai, as well as Arcél from ʔarkhel 'the world'.
