The Human Language is widely spoken in the Inheritance cycle. Some of all races know it, and Humans speak it most (as it is their language).

Real-World ConnectionsEdit

For practical purposes, the Human Language is whatever language the book is written in (a Spanish book has Spanish be the Human Language). In the notes for the dwarvish rune dictionary included in Deluxe Edition of Brisingr, however, Paolini states that the runes at appear on the map of Alagaësia were borrowed from the alphabet humans based upon the Hruthmundvik. He elaborates that they cannot "be read as n, s, e, and w, as people would now, for Eragon's speech is not our own and is a matter for examination elsewhere and elsewhen."
