Tabotan was a language spoken by the Tabotan people of Tabot in Kara-Tur.[2][3]

DescriptionEdit

There was a common Tabotan tongue that held the nation together, but local accents were thick.[2][3]

LearningEdit

Tabotan was quite a simple language and the common form was easily learned, but few outsiders knew it, and few Tabotans knew the Trade Tongue, only their native tongue. Fortunately, most cities and villages, especially those near the borders and along trade routes, had interpreters available. This in turn gave outsiders few incentives to learn Tabotan themselves.[2][3]
