About Shadow The language of the shadow people from my conworld, also widely used among those who are related to the paranormal - mainly, angels, demons, gargoyles, rakshasas, and sorcerers. It's also a language of science - namely, alchemy and psychology.

No one really knows the origins of this language, so there's a lot of theories. Anyway, shadow people from Jüd become able to speak it once they learn to speak their mother tongue(don't forget that an individual of any species can be a shadow). The number of speakers of the Shadow language is unknown, but many suppose it's at least two times larger than the number of the shadows themselves.

What Shadow language is like? Well, it's a phonetical hell. My friends say it sounds like a Polish exorcist. Basically, I designed it to sound unnerving. The vocabulary is based on English, Gaelic(both Irish and Scottish), Welsh, Romanian, Norwegian, Ukrainian and Malay. The sentence structure is mainly VSO, the grammar is similar to Ukrainian and Romanian, but a bit more simple.
