Aurish Language

Article written by Ambro & Uziel

The Aurish Language was spoken by the people of Aurim on Taladas. There was also a dialect called High Aurish. It is also commonly known as Auric and is still spoken by the Glass Sailors and the folk of the Rainward Isles.

Aurish is the cornerstone of many developed languages in Southern Hosk, given the length and breadth of the Aurim Empire, and its former influence. Aurish has close ties with Panak Language, Baltch Language, Marak Kender Language, Gnomish, Hitehkel, Thenolian Language and Kothian Language.
