About Aracov Spoken primarily in the Prusovic Kingdom of Aracovix. Contemporary in this form since the mid 10th century AE (After the Empire).

Spoken in:
Aracovix
Nyecovix
Northern Etammar

Split from Lintelix or Lijtel'x around the 3rd century DE (During the Empire) when five tribes split. The Yarrvaes, the Dannes, the Arkux, the Lintelijn and the Lebori. The Arkux settled in Aracovix and became the Aracov and the Dannes adopted the Yarrvaesi tongue to make the Danneyaraes and settled in modern day Danneyar and the Yarrvaes settled in Fareyar. The Lintelijn fast became extinct as they blended with the other tribes and lost their language. The Lebori travelled to the far Lebric isles, especially Lebreos.

[view] Mörkuva (Morkovian)Spoken in the northern reaches of the island of Etammar, settled by Aracovians and separate from Aracov for centuries, however, there are still strong ties to the parent tongue. Morkovian speakers have an excessively thick accent and to the untrained ear sound like they are speaking a completely different language. One High Aracov stereotype is that Morkovians sound like they are singing during speech, thus are called "kuskjekelva" or "singers"
[view] Neornvæs (Northern Speech)Spoken in Northern Aracovix, principally in the city of Svolheim.
[view] Läffenik Væs (Standard Aracov)Spoken in the south of Aracovix, especially around the capital city of Aracobn. It is considered to be the standard dialect of the language.
