A question on language

Post by Menel on Tue Jul 21, 2015 10:29 pm

Yes u.u Diane asking a question reminded me I had one :"D

I was wondering... I know there is a central language, but is there an option for other languages? Could you have a character with a cultural or species-specific language? Either real (as in exists in this world) or imaginary (such as say the elves having their own language)???

Thanks!!!

Well, anyone can make a language tbh. Just look at the Dutch!

For real, though, if you wanted to have your character's clan or family know their own little specific, native language, I certainly won't stop you! However, because all of the species who can talk interact with one another, it's assumed that most, if not all, are taught one main language. Also of note, while we type in English, or Spanish, or whatever you'd like to type in, we do this so it's understandable to us. IC our characters are probably speaking some sort of Polemos language, because England/America/etc. don't exist in Polemos. But if you'd like to have personal rp lore of other tongues, that's perfectly fine by me!

Species specific may have once been something, but as the species branched out and time went by, these were sure to adapt and evolve, so cultural specific languages are more likely, and species specific are probably akin to our Latin/Gaelic/ancient Greek. Basically, not used so much anymore--but that's up to you and your characters. c:  

tl;dr yes! there is a central language but your character is free to know other languages if you'd like. c: Probably not real world languages because like... to have Spanish you probably needed Spain to exist, y'know?

Hope that clears things up for you!
