Jhaamdathan was also known as "Old Chondathan", and as this name suggests, it was the direct precursor of the Chondathan language. The original "Common" tongue, Thorass ("Old Common"), came about as a mixture of Jhaamdathan and Alzhedo, and thus, Jhaamdathan was a progenitor of modern Common as well.
- ↑ Giantcraft describes Jotun as a progenitor of Thorass. As Thorass is clearly described as resulting from Jhaamdathan and Alzhedo, and Alzhedo was derived from Auran, Jotun must also be a progenitor of Jhaamdathan.
