THE LANGUAGES



I. HUMA

A generalized term for all Human-originated languages. English, Mandarin, Lebanese, so forth. Because of its widely-cast net, a vast majority of Gilead speak some or more of these Huma languages regardless of if the speaker is Human or not.

II. WOLVISH

Known by both legend and religion to be the language of the Old Gods, Old Wolvish has therefore been named with the Dire in mind. Despite this, it is not the only language that Dire speak, nor do they inherently speak it. Wolvish is a somewhat rare language in Gilead, primarily kept alive by the tongues of the Khogate Dire, and those who can utter more than a few words of it are assumed to at least have connection to the Dire of the Holy Land. Standard Wolvish, however, is separate from Old Wolvish, and is meanwhile a well-documented language of non-Khogate Dire, and can even be taught academically to other races.

III. QADAR

The largest documented Eximius language. After the vast majority of Eximius were banished to the hostile reaches of Gilead, their understanding of one another in terms of language was said to rival that of Babylon's: pure chaos. Over time, the Eximius of would-be Ballasburn adapted to developing a new, universal language that bridged the gap and led to incredible advancements in a short period of time.

IV. QSL

An acronym for Qing Sign Language, a wordless Snelandian language named after the legendary warlord who rose to fame 10,000 years ago after winning a reported 500 wars without fail by training her battalions in an exclusive sign language; this allowed them to communicate silently and without being drowned out by the wind. The legend states that she abandoned in the cold as a newborn once her indigenous parents had determined she was deaf. Discovered by a hunter/gatherer couple, Qing was said to learn to "hear through the art of body language," and learned to speak back in the same way. After proving her ability to read her opponents, Qing enlisted as a warrior and began teaching them her ways. She then retired and spent her days teaching her indigenous people QSL.

V. SCRITT

Scritt is yet another wordless language, however its commonality is even less than that of QSL. Hidden among rare nomads and other curious individuals, Scritt is a language of necessity, not pleasure. However, it isn't the product of any Gileadian race: Draconians are the curators of this tongue comprised of clicking, humming, varied whistles and morse code tapping. It is said by the precious few who live in harmony with these exotic creatures that, similar to cats, Draconians have adapted to communicate with their counterparts by developing Scritt, a middle ground that both sides can partake in. While its use is few and far between, The Weyrians are the most consistent users given their bond with their scaly friends.

VI. NONDESCIRPT

All lesser-spoken languages of Gilead are classed as Nondescript. Languages are born every day in Gilead, after all. (you can make your own languages if you like!)

    DICTIONARY: STANDARD WOLVISH

    Standard Wolvish is largely spoken by non-Khogate Dire, and because of its widespread and mainstream use that has prevent its isolation, Standard Wolvish--or Kɔíhi,--is far more developed in current times as it has not been lost any more than any other full language in Gilead. As the Dire population flourished and continues to flourish after the bids to restore the demigods' numbers, Standard Wolvish has become more readily taught at an academic level throughout the world--barring nations with harsh aversion to Dire, of course. Generally however, speaking Standard Wolvish for any race is just as simple as taking courses, or picking up a book.
    Here is one such book.
