In Northern Sarvonia the orcs have a common tongue to communicate with each other the so-called Kh'om'chr'om. With thousands of dialects this language is often necessary even between related tribes.

It consists of hard grunting sounds and hissing, sounding cruel and unforgiving to other races. It is as hard to learn as to master a life in most orcish societies.

More things to add:

K'arq = attacker ("the one who hits")
Arq'u = defender ("the one that is being hit")
Mar = Wolf
Y = small, young, weak
Y'oc = orcling

General info:
K' - before a verb indicates personal subject
'u - behind the verb indicates object or thing being acted upon.
m - a negative (to be put before a word)
Y - to make things smaller, younger, weaker when put before the word

Examples:

K'marq'u - I won't hit you, I'm not hitting you (lit. I no hit you) Of course, this can also mean "He isn't hitting her." or "They haven't hit anything!" * The Kuglimz bard and current orcen expert F'ash postulates that the additional meanings possible here are conveyed by context and possibly by gestures or other non-verbal signals.

K'b'rak'u - "We declare war on you!" (lit. 'We fight you!")

K'mar hnk y'oc'u -  "The wolf bit the baby." (lit. "subject-wolf bite baby-object")

K'm'y! - "I'm not a weakling!"
