The Elven Language (known as Lan'ven in the tongue) is a language still used today; while imported from Halwes due to The Exodus, it found widespread use during the time of Jaher's Phoenix Empire and has since spread throughout Halcann. The language is generally described as soft-spoken, musical and pleasant to the ear.

Grammar & Linguistics Edit

The Elven Language features common usage of portmanteau and compounds in our case the elven language uses apostrophes (') to combine words and phrases, as well as cutting words into shorter versions (often to previous half of the word, eg Dasar becomes Das).

Apostrophe combination example:

Second = Seta

Golden = Sur

Age = Galaan

Golden Age = Surgalaan

Second Golden Age = Seta'surgalaan

Shortening combination example:

Paradise = Dasar

Shortened form of Dasar = Das

Sky Paradise = Aesadas

Apostrophe and shortening combination example:

Language (of) = Lanwen

Shortened form of Lanwen = Lan
