[view] Duöts (Low Peninsula Speech)Its the strangest dialect of all of the dialectal continuum, albeit still following most of Ayëniürnj's phonetical schemes and conjugations. Its is spoken in a few, more sheltered, cantons at the lower parts of the Duövelang region.
[view] Nouïr (Northspeech)A dialect quite close to the standard empire speech, but having more simplified vowels than all other dialects. It's the closest to a second lingua franca to all of the other different dialects, used quite a lot by traders all around the empire.
[view] Serrir (Southspeech)The dialect of the southern border cantons of the empire, a strange blend between the Gnir language and the Estnir southern dialects, with a good number of word borrowings and even phonemic influence.
[view] Ayëniürnj (Standard Empire Speech)The standard form of Gnir, teached all throughout the Gyägon empire and the language of prestige. Its the defacto Lingua Franca for most of the empire, but its mostly spoken in the central steppes of Higerren.
