Argenian Language

Spoken Argenian Common is similar enough to Japanese to allow communication between the races, so speaking the language would, in large part, sound like one was speaking Japanese with a strong accent. The written language is hieroglyphic in nature and likely couldn't be deciphered by any Earth scholars without a Rosetta Stone-like tool (so Argenians living on Earth are functionally illiterate unless they study the written language). Note that Argenian ethnic minorities often spoke their own distinct languages… and that it's likely bits and pieces of those also found their way into the Common language, the way many languages on Earth have borrowed from one another over time. The main purpose of Argenian language creation is to give names to people, places, things, ideas, and concepts that are foreign to Earth. Try to keep this in mind, as creating too many new words for common items defeats the point of saying the languages are similar to begin with.

See also the article on Argenian Animals, but bear in mind some of the listed names would be considered Earth equivalents (and feel free to contribute their more proper names).
