艾尔诺菲语 is an ancient language of 奈恩 used by the 艾尔诺菲人 during the 黎明纪元 as well as a dialect of Merish and is considered to be dead. Ehlnofex is also known to be one of the oldest languages in history and possibly an ancestral language to both 人类 and 莫. It was learned by both 梅尔-格里姆 and Annaig Hoinart in the 第四纪元 and the only known native speakers of Ehlnofex are the inhabitants of 地狱城 and Ehlnofey.
Few people in 泰姆瑞尔 know how to speak Ehlnofex. Some common words have their ancient roots in Ehlnofex like 神族 (Ancestor) or 魔族 (not our Ancestor).[来源？] Tamriel also takes its name from Ehlnofex (Starry Heart). Mostly, 丹莫 still use Ehlnofex words in common communication—addressing Sera or Serjo, Tel (Tower), Sadrith (Mushroom) or 莫拉格帮 (Forester Guild).
