      Of course you were going to come up with multiple answers.

        I totally swore i wasnt going to respond… but i have to!

        Cirth is the written runes actually… Not a separate language…

        And Aüle is actually one of the Valar who created the Dwarves (and therefore their language as well) buy the language is stand alone, as in it wasn’t constructed by Aüle from any other language… But in elvish structure Khuzdûl was known as Aülean to differentiate it from Elvish Oromëan


  2. Alison says:

    Although the Dwarves kept the Khazdul language secret…

    • iqtrivia says:

      Naturally, I expected there would be further information from the kind of people who would know this.

      • Alison says:

        I can provide more information if you like… Such as an example of how many times Dwarvish words are used, the fact that proper Dwarvish names are hardly used on their tombstones or something else perhaps? 😄

        • iqtrivia says:

          No no no, that’s quite enough. Though it is sufficiently obscure, nerdy, and above all, interesting to warrant a bonus point if you could get all of that down on an answer sheet.
