While not spoken over a large region, the language was subdivided into a variety of dialects, including Hlondethan creole, Middle (or Proper) Sespechian, Plains Sespechian, and Western (or "Lizard") creole. Hlondethan creole was a mixture of Proper Sespechian with the language of the yuan-ti of Hlondeth, Western creole was mixed with the tongue of the lizardfolk of Surkh, and Plains Sespechian was strongly influenced by the wemics of the Shining Plains. All of these dialects were distinct enough to make intercommunication difficult, because of both accent and vocabulary.
