About Urkobold Urkobold is spoken by the first kobolds of Falranda. As a god-given language it has not yet developed any irregularities. It is notable for it's use of the phone [¡], the sublaminal lower-alveolar percussive (mostly known due to it's participation in clicking the tongue [!¡]) and for the absence of verbs, which are replaced via creative use of cases.

A language course is available on memrise.
