"Speak Tamrielic, you lackwit brute! TAMRIELIC! Not that animal gibberish -- "
The Apprentice[src]

Tamrielic, sometimes referred to as the Common Tongue,[1][2] is the standard language spoken throughout The Elder Scrolls. It is the basic lingua franca of the Cyrodilic empire and its citizens, but is most widely spoken by humans.[3]

Trivia[]

  • In game, Tamrielic is represented by the native language used for whatever version the game is played on (for example, originally English).
  • Morokei considers Tamrielic to be a "guttural" language.[4]
  • Ironically, the word "Tamriel" itself is not Tamrielic, but Aldmeri.[5]
