Orc Language

The Orc language (kunja) is a language spoken by orcs. It is related to the dwarven language. There is no standardized writing system for the orc language as it is a rare orc who can read. Scholars use a phonetic dwarven script to write orc words.

Orc is a coarser language than Common, and many words lack the subtlety of Common. Orcs rely on context, repetition and volume to add emphasis or meaning.
