The Middle Isles
The Middle Isles enjoy a richness of various language. Our own tongue, shared with many of our neighbors, is dominant in commerce and thus called Trade. It is perhaps the most spoken of any language among Men. In descending order after this are Northron, Southron, Aerrisan, Baodi, Siorci and Vaornan, which survives only in the foul priesthoods of the Vaornan Empire. The Sun Kingdom maintains a curious dialect, a mix of Baodi and Trade they name Sun-Tongue. There is also the Sand-Tongue, which is spoken by the sparse denizens of the great deserts south of Zehid. Creatures such as the Dwarves, Sea Elves, Orcs, and Ogrim each have their own tongues as well, though they are little-known except by the rarest of traders and merchants.
