Nightmares of the Last War
The world of Eberron and it’s planes are host to a wide variety of different languages.
The Dragons, Demons and Couatl would argue over whose language was oldest but unarguably the first three languages were Draconic, Infernal and Celestial. Almost every language has developed or evolved from one or more of those three languages.
The most commonly used of those in the modern age is undoubtedly draconic, not only do the dragons of Argonessen speak it still but arcane scholars from all walks of life use it as the de facto language of magic, it’s even spoken in a bastardised form by many lizardfolk and kobold tribes.
The most commonly spoken language in Khorvaire is the aptly named Common, this ever changing language originated from the Riedran settlers of old and has changed through interactions with Goblin, Orc, Elven, Dwarven, halfling, Gnomish and a variety of other languages.
Giant was the main language spoken in Xen’drik during the age of giants, a hybridization of the old tribal Giant tongue and Draconic, the language spread to all corners of Xen’Drik and to areas of Khorvaire as well.
