Dwarfic is the language of the Azeran dwarves,this language like all others upon the land of Azeria was said to be dreamt of by Azeral during his long sleep at the begining of the world.Because of the dwarves social and historical background the majority of the language is centred around three activities:Mining,Smithing and warfare.The Accent with which Dwarfic is spoken resembles a northern english accent,Dwarfic usually follows the structure that the adjective goes after the noun,It is very simple in construction and so the precise meaning can only be worked out from tone and context,as can be seen by the large number of cognates it is a pidgen varient of Azeric .Below is a small cross section of words and phrases,the apostrophes are used when pronunciation of vowels is difficult.
