The abyssal language was the language of demons.[1]

HistoryEdit

It was a form of the Primordial language warped and twisted by the evil of the Abyss.[2]

SoundEdit

Lower-ranking demons spoke using sounds like the barking of canines, while the speech of more refined demons sounded like softly droning ocean waves mingled with the violence of a swarm of angry hornets. As with everything involving the tanar'ri, however, their speech was unpredictable, and sometimes an elite balor's words were rougher or a lowly bar-lgura's words smoother.[3]

ScriptEdit

Abyssal used the Infernal language's script[4] or the Barazhad alphabet.[5]
