Primordial was the language of primordials[3] and elementals[1]. The Giant language was a debased form of it. The Abyssal language was a form of Primordial warped and twisted by the evil of the Abyss.[3]

It was also considered a language family, so that the elemental languages Aquan, Auran, Ignan, and Terran were considered a group of dialects of Primordial. They were sufficiently similar that creatures who understood one of those dialects could understand the others as well.[1]

Primordial used the Barazhad script[2] or the Dwarvish script.[1]
