Talk:Orcish Language

Jump to navigation Jump to search

There is no set Orcish language. Long ago orcs used a language called the Black Language in J.R.R. Tolkein fantasy history in Lord of the Rings. Upon the fall of Sauron, orcs all forgot the Black Language and took what they could of other languages and perverted it to a broken beat up language. Each clan took words as they learned them and broke them up which made clans that were very far apart not capable of understanding each other. This is why there is no set Orcish language. All clans have thier own words and meaning, some derived from Black Speech and some derived from other languages. No orc clan to this day would be able to understand pure Black Speech since it has been long since forgotten. Pure Black Speech would sound something along the lines of, "Ash nazg durbatuluk, ash nazg gimbatul, ash nazg thrakatuluk agh burzum-ishi krimpatul." meaning, "One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the Darkness bind them." (LotR1/II ch. 2) Orcs almost hate to talk and show it in thier way of phrasing things. Elves have a love for thier language and have prefected it so it rolls off the tounge into a lovely blend of sound and meaning. Orcs on the other hand blurt out words in a way that shows they wish they never had to say it at all. The words are broken and tend to even be made up as the orc goes along which makes it have no meaning to the rest. Most of the time that is done out of anger and just a need to get some sound out, no matter if the orc knows what he/she is saying or not.

Bloodrock Language is a bit of Black Speech with alot of human english distorted and clashed into a rough sounding and spelled language. Not all words are known since many new words are picked up everyday and many are forgotten. Not much of the language is required in order to understand what most of the orcs are saying though. With time in the clan, you learn the language as you go so don't be intimidated by the large vocabulary. All beginners easily learn the key words.

Smart orcs tend to know what is called the "common tongue" which is the language most commonly used for trading and negotiating. Orcs also clash the common tongue to sound something along the lines of, "Trugagh no need that! Trugagh go now."
