Species Human/humanoid
About Drelian Drelian is the 2nd most common language on the planet Merlen, spoken primarily by Elves, or Drel. It follows an object-subject-verb grammatical structure, and has a separate written alphabet. It's designed to be elegant, but not overtly so; words can be both functional and pleasing to hear. This, and a majority of my other languages, are purely for fun. I'm not a language expert, and I don't plan on becoming one, but I thought at least somewhat fleshing out the languages in my world would help me build it.
