About Valendhirdven Valendhirdven is widely spoken across the northwest region of Erdáin, mostly by humans. It comes from the proto language Dreseláe, but has a lot of influence of Elünthunyrndhen, mostly at the dialect of the peninsula of Valendhir and close regions. Valendhir, by having grown into a powerful kingdom, has imposed its culture into a great region where the language is spoken. Although most of the speakers, which are in the central lands of the Mighty Lands speak the dialect of Addven, the dialect of Valendhir is said to be the official form of the tongue, because the kingdom is the superpower in the area.
