About Sorkish Sorkish language is a wide dialect continuum stretching from the westernmost areas of the Sor Desert to the easternmost ones. The literary language described on this page is based on the dialect spoken in the Sorkish capital city of Seqhánzat. Historical spelling is crazier the farther you get from there (still in the works).
