Habololy Main 

There are many languages spoken on Habololy.  Some of these are derived from each other while others are unique and found only in very specific locations.  The most prolific language is known as common.  It is the language used by most humans, and since they are the most populous of all races, many other races use it as well.  In fact, the use of the common language has become so prolific that some of its more common words are used in every language.  The prime example of this is the word moon, which did not exist until 213 AC.  When the first human used the term, it quickly spread to all languages and became generally accepted.

Below is a list of languages that exist on Habololy.  In many cases, there is a basic language with some different dialects of that language.  The dialects are in fact different languages for the purpose of learning a new language, but in some cases the dialects are so close that a character that speaks one might be able to understand the dialect.  There are several different alphabets used among the languages.  The alphabet used by each language is listed.  Also listed are the most common practitioners of each language.
