Ah, that's a little complicated, but quite interesting too.  Not sure if I remember it correctly, but isn't the human side of their ancestry mostly Kuglimz?  Perhaps their language could likewise be a descendent of Kuglimz'seitre, with grammar largely similar to that of Kuglimz'seitre (though there isn't much information on that...) and basic vocabulary mostly being modified forms of Kuglimz'seitre words?  The two languages should then appear quite similar, with just enough differences to be recognizably different languages, like Italian and Spanish.  The influence of other tribes could take the form of borrowed words, perhaps even replacing a large portion of the vocabulary for groups like the Mist Hunters, and maybe a bit of grammar?

The Kaaer are undergoing some revision including ancestry. While the Kaaer are descendants of Kuglimz, they are also of the Antislar bloodline, which is an Icetribe. At the moment, the Kaaer words on-site are Kuglimz/orcen modifications (thanks to Alysse's expertise there!)

Of the three clans, the Kuglimz could influence one while the Antislar another. The Mist Hunters, being migratory farther north, have more influence among the Osther-Oc. Given that, all three clans have separate dialects much like the Native Americans of the U.S. (the Sioux in particular).

While the language structure and dialects would be a fascinating study, I fear that is my weak point...without help from someone like Alysse or Tharoc, I'd never get any language done. Though M'ruk may be a viable alternative if he's interested!

No, I would not want to live in a world without dragons, as I would not want to live in a world without magic, for that is a world without mystery, and that is a world without faith. And that, I fear, for any reasoning, conscious being, would be the cruelest trick of all.
