Ehlnofex is an ancient language of Nirn used by the Ehlnofey during the Dawn Era as well as a dialect of Merish and is considered to be dead.[1] Ehlnofex is also known to be one of the oldest languages in history and possibly an ancestral language to both Men and Mer. It was learned by both Mere-Glim and Annaig Hoinart in the Fourth Era and the only known native speakers of Ehlnofex are the inhabitants of Umbriel and Ehlnofey.[1]

Common usageEdit

Few people in Tamriel know how to speak Ehlnofex. Some common words have their ancient roots in Ehlnofex like Aedra (Ancestor) or Daedra (not our Ancestor).[source?] Tamriel also takes its name from Ehlnofex (Starry Heart).[2] Mostly, Dunmer still use Ehlnofex words in common communication—addressing Sera or Serjo, Tel (Tower), Sadrith (Mushroom) or Morag Tong (Forester Guild).[3]
