Ordhjóma

Jump to: navigation, search

Ordhjóma is the language of the Glamfellen in The White that Wends. There are a few elements of grammar and vocabulary that have common roots with Eld Aedyran and are not found in other surrounding languages (e.g. the languages spoken by boreal dwarves), but the similarities end there. The reason is that the language of the Glamfellen has diverged greatly from the original tongue of their ancestors who originally settled the White that Wends. Though it may share common roots with Aedyran, Ordhjóma is incomprehensible to those who haven't studied it.[1]
