Few Orc Shamans are versed in the history of their language. Those that can trace their language back are part of the White Serpent Tribe. The White Serpents trace their language back to a language that can be called Orcrist, and back further still to Primal Orcrist. However, there is nothing to trace it back that far except that human linguists can figure that there are strong dialects amongst the tribes except for the Horde.
Tree: Primal Orcrist --> Orcrist --> Orcish.
Orcish script was orginally pictographic, but has developed into a vocalized abjad script composed of runes. It's a syllabary that is composed of orcish runes and symbols. Unfortunately, not all of them have been deciphered by Hellenic philosophers and sages.
Constructing Orcish Edit
It has become necessary, now, to construct the orc language. Instead of using the WoW Language, I'm going to construct a whole new language completely from scratch. This is so that everyone can see how a language is constructed.
