About Korokese Qzar Kazan Radja the Conqueror never thought his robot minions, called "Koroks", had the processing power to make their own language, but here it is: a strange tongue (microphone?) developed by the robots to talk with the human slaves, or maybe by the human slaves to speak with each other and adopted by the robots... nobody really knows for sure how it came about, but it's here. This is the version spoken after Mr Radja stopped being a conqueror but the Koroks escaped being put out of service to continue his mining empire. In evidence from Radja's reign, like carvings in the Black Mountains, one can find evidence of a Proto-Korokese language.
