Upon your arrival in Lusternia, you will have the ability to speak Lusternian, the common language. Most, though not all, will also speak a racial language as well.

To see what language(s) you can speak, type SPEAK.
To speak a different language, type SPEAK <language>.
To see the language you are currently speaking, simply type LANGUAGE.

Language comes into play in tells, yells, says, and shouts. All other forms of communication are language-independent.
