Internal history

Gabriel McGovern created the Ederic language to be spoken (and written) by the Lyer (pronounced 'jεr) of Civéer (pronounced 'kiv-jεr); it is descended from the Ancient Orthasin tongue and bears similarities to Arduric and Modern Orthasin. Ederic is the primary tongue of the human race (them being wholly sundered from the other races on a separate continent), though other human tongues unrelated to Ancient Orthasin do exist. The Ederic language is much more closely related to English than any other of Gabriel's languages.
