Warbreaker Languages?

26 posts in this topic

Well, it is possible for completely separate languages to use the same alphabet. We see that all the time in our own world. English, German, French, and Spanish use essentially the same alphabet with a few language specific derivations. Yes, French and Spanish were originally the same language and are still close enough that people who can read one can read very basic writings in the other. Even Japanese and Chinese use essentially the same character to a large extent. Japanese does have its own written language, but even some educated Japanese have a hard time trying to figure it out.

IF you throw in the fact that there is more than likely a distant mother language that all of the others are based upon, it makes even more sense that they would share some of the same alphabets in the cosmere.
