I love the thought behind the categories you use for the languages! Gives me stuff to think about for my own languages!

Dear Kind Traveller,

Languages are at the heart of all sophontic society and culture. To understand them is to understand your people's past, present, and future. On Solith, the languages of Humanity have had an irrevocable effect on the civilized world. Yet, the languages of the continent's native inhabitants have managed to cling to existence in the strangest and most intriguing ways.
