The Common Tongue of Southern Lethea
As our God's word spreads, so shall the tongue of her people!Ambrelic is the native language of the Ambrelians. It is believed to be a language isolate as it is completely different from the Pallernic languages that the neighbours of the Ambrelians speak. When Abreanism began to spread throughout Southern Lethea, the language of the clergy spread with it. By the 3rd century, Ambrelic had become the common language that the Abreanist used for communication.
Ambrelic has by now become the common language of Southern Lethea. It is taught in nearly every country and in some, learning the language is a requirement. Diplomats, nobles, merchants, and other such important people are all expected to speak Ambrelic.
The origins of the language are foggy at best. One of the only things that linguists have agreed upon is that Ambrelic existed in the region far before the arrival of the Pallernic peoples. As new people migrated in to the lush and fertile Tellaiti subcontinent, the Ambrelians were driven back. Some believe that their language wasn't unique and that there were others like them. Others who failed to defend their lands from the newcomers and were either killed or assimilated.
