Lantanese, also known as Lantanna,[1] was the official language of Lantan.[2][3]

Speakers[edit | edit source]

Other regions where Lantanese was commonly spoken included the Nelanther Isles and Tethyr.[4][5]

Script[edit | edit source]

Literate Lantanese speakers used the Draconic alphabet.[2] Scholars suspected that the Lantanna people learned of this language through trade with early Halruaan or Nimbrali traders.[6]

Related Languages[edit | edit source]

Some scholars classified Lantanna as an Imaskari language,[1] but this was far from accepted by everyone.[note 1]

Examples[edit | edit source]

Common female names in Lantanese were Avilda, Bersace, Charissa, Melsany, Phaerilda, Ravace, and Umbrasy. Male names might be Eberc, Fodoric, Koger, Lambrac, Midoc, Norbert, Samber, or Tibidoc. Common Lantanese surnames included Angalstrand, Decirc, Lamstrand, SeKorc, SeLangstra, and SeMilderic.[7]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. Tom Costa placed Lantanna in the Imaskari languages grouping in his "Speaking in Tongues" Dragon article based on the suggestions of Eric L. Boyd and others that the Lantanna people descended from the Imaskari, but this has not been established as canon. See Thomas M. Costa (2015-06-13). Rashemi & Jotun Languages ... Need Some Help..
