Garlamthar language (the transliteration of the ideograms is Gār Lăm Thâŗ, meaning "High Language of the Thars") is de facto the official language of the Confederated Tribes of Vvorash, or at least considered a major language in the country, while it is locally considered a minor language in the bordering region of Kajame (Hmiir). It is also spoken in the few orcish settlements and communities around the world (Thâŗjārkō͂sh).
Classification and DialectsEdit
Garlamthar is considered a thar language belonging to the Sanivarthin group. It belongs to the Orcish languages family, and has strong connections with other languages of the same family, such as Gemvema, Dorgushalt and Norsuns (sometimes even considered "variations" of the same language). In spite of these similarities, which make the four languages mutually understandable, there are sometimes big differences concerning, for example, writing systems or grammar.
Even though the different dialects in Garlamthar language have same grammatical rules and same phonology, they differentiate for the way the ideograms are read: for example, the ideogram meaning "house" is read źā͂r in the south-central area of Vvorash, while it is read ćā͂ŗ on the east mountains and tsē in the north.
