The ancient Dragon Language is the language used by dragons. Text in the Dragon Language is found on walls in ancient dungeons and on burial grounds.[1] The runes used for writing the language are described in the Dragon Alphabet article.

With sufficient understanding, certain words can be shouted to produce magical effects such as conjuring fire, cold, or wind; slowing time; or pushing an enemy away. This ability is known as the Thu'um.[2]

[edit] Grammar

The language is structurally similar to English, with three exceptions: it has no equivalent to English's apostrophes, it tends to place prepositional phrases earlier in sentences, and verb tense is often ignored.[oog 1] To make a word plural, the last letter of the singular word is repeated and followed by an "e". For example, the plural form of "kel" (an Elder Scroll) is "kelle".

The singular possessive ("my", "your", "his", or "her") is formed by adding the letter "i" to the end of the word, except when the word ends in "ii", in which case an "l" is appended. The plural possessive ("our" or "their") is formed by adding the letter "u". To indicate a perfect verb form (as in "has silenced"), the letters "aan" are added to the end of the word.

[edit] Names

Dragon names are typically formed of three monosyllabic words (though not necessarily Words of Power per se) that, as a whole, may be rendered as a Shout. Each dragon name is unique, and so dragons are able to use these Shouts to address each other across vast distances.

While dragon names are easily separated into their word components, translating them as a whole is another matter. The main complication arises from the character Esbern, who reads the name Odahviing (literally: Snow-Hunter-Wing) and extrapolates it as a coherent phrase; "Winged Snow-Hunter". Assuming this interpretation is correct, no other examples exist to indicate how a dragon's name may be translated.

Known dragon names include:

Alduin: Destroyer-Devour-Master
Durnehviir: Curse-Never-Dying
Mirmulnir: Allegiance-Strong-Hunt
Nahagliiv: Fury-Burn-Wither
Odahviing: Snow-Hunter-Wing
Paarthurnax: Ambition-Overlord-Cruelty
Sahloknir: Phantom-Sky-Hunt
Viinturuth: Shine-Hammer-Rage
Vuljotnaak: Dark-Maw-Eat
Vulthuryol: Dark-Overlord-Fire
