Gurri was the language spoken by the nomadic Gur people.[1]

DescriptionEdit

Gurri was an nasal language, with long E and I vowels drawn out.[3]

ScriptEdit

In later times, Gurri made use of the Thorass alphabet.[2]

HistoryEdit

Although considered a patois or creole tongue of the Imaskari languages group, scholars observed the influence of countless other languages, many of them dead by the 14th century DR. In particular, the dead Halardrim language of the Rashemi had a strong influence;[1] the Gurs were generally believed to be of Rashemi descent.[2] Among the Imaskari languages, it was most closely related to the Eastern group.[1]
