Only a very few native
Reanaarians speak true Reanaarese. The people who settled along the
western shores of Reanaaria Bay developed it. Through trade and
interaction with other races, Reanaarese has lost much of its original
character. Most residents of Reanaaria Bay's city-states now speak
Merchant's Tongue as a primary language.
The use of double and
even triple vowel combinations characterizes Reanaarese. Nouns are
generally two syllables long, but three syllable words are not
uncommon. Verbs are longer, typically three to four syllables. A
speaker pronounces verbs more slowly than any other form of speech.
Nouns are spoken louder, to set them off from the rest of the words in
a sentence. Adjectives and adverbs are usually only one syllable long.
The suffix -asoo indicates male gender, -amoo, female and -uxoo,
The language varies from
city to city, due to the many dialects and accents.

When originally published, there were separate versions for Macintosh
and Windows. The "Macintosh" version was Type 1 Postscript and
reflected our background and experience on the legacy version of
software for that platform (i.e. MacOS 9 or "classic"). Since that
time, "OS X" has almost completed replaced that user base.
Significant typography changes have also occured in the intervening
years. Adobe has depreciated Type 1 Postscript and OpenType has become
the preferred font format. To address these changes, an
OpenType version of the font has been created and the multi-platform
version has been consolidated.
This file now contains OpenType, TrueType and Type 1 Postscript
versions encapsulated within a single .zip file (the Mac version
previously used a StuffIt file that today is no longer universally
We hope these changes satisfy the needs of our users.
