Species Human/humanoid
About Kendri Kendri is spoken in Western Umur, where it is the lingua franca and main written language of three humanoid and four ylfwoid species, and the native language of some of those. It is not known with which species it originated. It belongs to a wider class of languages and dialects here referred to as Kendric. Its history can be divided into older, classic, middle and later Kendri. The oldest known language of the family, known as Old Ekyumei, is preserved only in inscriptions and other fragments, and is valuable for understanding the history of Kendri.
