About High Thranian High Thranian, or Ċerone, is the standard language of the Thranian empire, and by extension, the lingua franca of most of the Continent it is on. It has a rather small consonant and vowel inventory and its verbal and nominal morphology are both fairly limited. However, phrasing can be incredibly complex, and there are many auxiliary and modal verbs, as well as pre-and-postpositions. Low Thranian is no longer very widely used, but when it is it refers to  Djorev.
