I also wanted to mention a thought: the basic language is "primal", in that the Trolls, Elves, and Preservers all use the same language throughout the ages, rooted from what was used onboard the shell/"Palace" before becoming marooned on Abode.


Isn't there a story about the wolfriders coming upon a communication device sent out by the High One's ship, where Skywise was the only one who could receive the messages? Didn't Timmain speak an entirely different language?

If that's the case, it would kind of make you wonder how all these tribes (and preservers...and trolls) would speak the same language after all those years.

(Babel fish, of course!)

Good thing there's no discrepancies in Elfquest. Laugh
