The Klar Filvath Language

IMG_7412Klar Filvath is the language of the gods in the world of The Severed Islands series. While I’m sure the language is going to be a lifelong project, here is what I have so far. I’ll be updating the following pages frequently as the grammar and lexicon develop.

For a quick overview and short story recording, check out this YouTube Video.


History

Language of the gods since the beginning of time, Klar Filvath was passed on to humans after the creation of the planet Brulan. Isolated from its parent language, the language of humans evolved almost beyond recognition over thousands of years into Brulanian, the Common Tongue, and the parent language was forgotten until the puzzling emergence of humans with some limited magical abilities shortly after the colonization of the Severed Islands. The first man to exhibit these magical abilities, Hulfath Kahlaerin, was soon after able to interpret ancient texts and speak fluently in Klar Filvath. Both his powers and the language have been passed down through his descendants ever since, the language maintaining its rough and primitive nature as underuse and cultural elitism stifled its development.

Presently, it is used by Kahlaerin descendants in private meetings or any other formal gathering. Several Klar Filvath phrases and idioms have worked their way into the common language of the Severed Islands as well.
