Twelve Languages Total
All of the four "elemental" tongues (Ignan, etc) are simply called Ifrit, Oread, etc.
In addition, there is a more esoteric dialect of each language that must be learned separately:
-High Ifrit (mostly used by the Temple)
-Benthic (used by the Swem; also sign language 'Tendril Benthic')
-Maker Script (used by the Mithral Makers)
-Sedime (pidgin used by various minor oread tribes)
There are three 'outsider' tongues: Geni (roughly equivalent to Abyssal), Exhume (roughly quiv to Infernal) and Eleme (roughly equivalent to Celestial). However, none of these languages is available to starting characters.
All races start with Common and (native language) for free, then bonus languages for high Int. Low int loses race language (common is much easier to learn, and universal)
Ifrit is definitely Italian and it's pretty common for ifrits to throw in certain words of their own language, even when having a conversation in Common.
High Ifrit is Latin. I'm planning on using Vietnamese for Undine. Benthic would best be represented with Simplified Chinese. I wanted to do a Native American language for Oread, but let's keep it simple with something that's on Google translations - Zulu. Sedime is Afrikaans. Irish for Sylph. Welsh for Maker Script.
Arabic for Geni (abyssal; demons, genies). Amharic for Eleme (celestial; true elementals). Bangla for Exhume (fallens angels/elementals/champions)
