The Aldmeri Language, known as Aldmeris[1] is one of Tamriel's oldest languages and is spoken by the Altmer. It is structurally similar to Ehlnofex but more consistent in grammatical syntax and phonetic meaning. Most other languages, such as Dunmeri, Bosmeri, and Nedic, stem from the Aldmeri Language and the namesake of most places in Tamriel, including Tamriel itself, are based on Aldmeri words.
