About Dwarven (Mountain or High-)Dwarven is the oldest and most common form spoken among the (mountain) Dwarves. Although all Dwarves look alike (other than Dark Dwarves) they all have very different sounding languages. Mountain Dwarves look at themselves as the "most purist/whole" type of Dwarf, as their language and appearance is closest to the "Ancients" (although there is a case and evidence that Dark Dwarven is actually purer and closer to the "ancient tongue") Dwarven is OVS with adjectives before nouns.
