L'Teir'Dal Zhaun'ol

(The Teir'Dal Dictionary) An Adaptation of the Drow Tongue for use in EverQuest

This dictionary is an adaption of the Drow Dictionary which was assembled from excerpts from "The Drow of the Underdark" by TSR, Inc. and other authorized D&D sources. This is by no means an attempt to rewrite that known as "Drow", only to serve as a reference for use in Everquest by those known as Teir'Dal (Dark Elves). No intent to infringe on any copyright or to plagiarize previous work has been made. Changes from Drow to Teir'Dal include renaming references to Lloth with reference to Innoruuk (as appropriate) and any Drow and D&D specific terms have been removed or modified.

This dictionary has been prepared by the Sorcere for the use of the Drow in dealing with other races and as a guide for other races in the proper dealings with the Drow. To facilitate such use, the majority of this Dictionary has been translated into Common.

Any Drow allowed contact with other races should have received training in proper conduct elsewhere, thus no effort has been made to supplement such training here. Non-Drow are advised to pay heed to these Usage Notes. Many Drow societies welcome mutually profitable or pleasurable dealings with other races or societies. However, the Drow are a justly proud people and are quick to take offense -- often fatal offense -- at what they perceive to be insults or breaches of etiquette.

You have been warned.

This 2nd Edition Version was converted to HTML by Veldrindel with additional content contributions from Cyriex, Dkama, Nymxara, Xxtayce and others of the Fennin Ro server. As with any of these Teir'Dal Dictionaries there may be some slight differences in words that have been modified or newly created. Feel free to edit this wiki page if you think of something else that should be added here.

Coincidentally, the possessive case in the Drow language is very similar to the Common Tongue used by most races. The possessive case is completed with "'s" except if the word ends in "s" where upon "'" is added.

Nindil zhah lil Valsharess' elgluth That is the Valsharess' whip

Adjectives have three forms: positive, comparative, and superlative. Withstanding irregular forms, the comparative form is completed with "ur" while the superlative is completed with "url". The common "-ful" suffix for many adjectives is indicated by "'urn".
