The primary language spoken in Dundorf, Dundorfian is considered the oldest member of the Dundorfian language family whose members include English (Englische), Dorvish (Dorvische) (very similar to Dundorfian and sometimes considered a dialect of Dundorfian), Duntrekaans (Duntrekänische), Malivian Dundorfian (Malildundorfische) and Dovani-Dundorfian languages such as Kazulian (Kazulische) and Hulstrian (Hulsterreichisches Dundorfische).
Dundorfian can be remarkably similar to English, once one learns to pronounce the alphabet and look past the differences in spelling. This is because English evolved from an early form of Dundorfian.
