Dictionary of the Inner Realms: Languages

A stort, tentative list of words: In Draconian, Ancient Wolf-Speak and Illunian.  So far compiled from various Chronicles.

Terms:
Dragonwolflet — young Dragonwolf child, before they are ten, both.
Note that the Wolf-Speak is very similar to the Illunae.  Kin-Clans and Races of that time period ‘borrowed’ from each other.  As of late, the original meanings are lost, but these are used most often by the Lady Adellandra and her Packs.  The Draconian is of the Empire Itself, taught to Lady Adellandra by her mate, Lord Draconis.  The Mortallan language English, is known throughout as “Northern”, though no one is sure why.  Could be because it derives from the Northern Hemisphere in the Americas?
