Language speculation

Postby Didgin » Thu Sep 03, 2009 6:30 am

Hi there, I'm kinda now here, so this might be something disscused before (although when I searched for it here I've found nothing).
What is the spoken language is Erfworld? It's English in the comic, but this might be just for our convinience. I believe it is English, only Erfworlders probably call it "Engwish".
You're not your character class.
You're not how much GP you have in the bank.
You're not the airship you fly.
You're not the contents of your item list.
You're not you fuggin' armor.
You are the all-fighting, all-spellcasting heroes of the world.

given erfworld pops the meals the unit likes eating i'd guess they could all be sepaking whatever the heck they wanted. you'll just hear thing the way they were meant to sound.

so to further elaborate.

they all hear correctly, except when the speaker is incohherent. ie stanley getting names wrong.

Based on the capitalization here in panel six I'd say that they're speaking Language. I can't tell whether Stanley wants someone who already speaks Language or whether the spell Wanda is casting supposed to teach him Language though.

The Perfect Warlord Summoning spell just found another world where they speak something close to their own language, in the same way that it presumably found a world with a similar atmosphere, carbon-based dextrorotary chemistry, gravity, etc. (And a similar source of light and heat?)
They could not possibly win. Every man knew this with certainty, and lo it was glorious.

You're right. Forgot all about that line.

i didn't, i just figure language meant what it does and wasn't the name of their language.
