Several languages are spoken by peoples all across Qirsyllviar, Zedylric being the most common, mainly as a lingua franca. Since Qirsyllviar is on another plane of existence from Earth, several of the languages of Qirsyllviar are identical to various Earth languages.

Most languages use a real language as the equivalent, but others use a constructed language instead.

Several languages have either fallen out of use in general society as a result of language shifts, or have become extinct from a lack of speakers. Several still remain as a liturgical language.

    • In Quanyu's case, the written script uses seal, regular, and other calligraphic styles.

Animal Languages

Animal Languages, also known as Faunatongues, are languages associated with certain animals and the ability to speak them. The ability to converse with animals is considered a gift by many, though it is extremely rare. It is normally hereditary, but it is known to skip generations, and every once in a while it can pop up in a person, though only one in a million are lucky enough to have the gift.

Known Faunatounges include, but are not limited to:

  • Avetongue: the language of birds
  • Canitongue: the language of dogs
  • Equustongue: the language of horses and similar species. Sub-language of now-extinct Centaurian.
  • Felitongue: the language of cats
  • Serpotongue: the language of serpents
  • Dracotongue: the language of Dragons
  • Vulpatongue: the language of wolves

Language Rings

Language rings are magical devices. Wearing a ring allows the wearer to understand other languages and be understood by others. They were invented so that people who do not speak the same language can understand one another without the hassle of learning another language.

Notes & Trivia

  • Modern Turkish is very different from Old Turkic, and so the transliterations are not perfect. Some improvisation was required.
  • Although the texts in the stories The Silver Bat and The Secret of Garvis is in English, unless someone is stated or shown to be speaking a different language, the spoken language is Zedylric. It should be firmly noted that characters in the stories do not speak in English (while it is the real-world equivalent).
