Guide to Draconic

Tiami a Kuun, also know as draconic, is the language originally spoken by the dragons. When they taught humans the ways of elemental magic, they taught them also to speak in their own tongue. In present day Ryuutachi, only the remnants of Zosara keep draconic alive in the form of spells. Otherwise, it is as dead a language as real world Latin.

~ My thanks to Frederico Shroeder whose insight and creativity helped make this Conlang a reality.

This language was created for and featured in the Elements of Chaos series.
