Character races in the 5th edition of the Dungeons and Dragons games speak any of the 5e languages. There are a lot of 5e languages to choose from. The 5e language is written in ‘Scripts’ just like the English or the French language is written in letters.
The language which you can speak is dependent on two factors. Your race indicates the languages which you can speak by default while your background might give you access to one or more additional languages. This post breaks down the 5e languages and also helps you understand the DND race that speaks each of the languages.
D&d 5e Languages Scripts
- Common Scripts
- Dwarvish Scripts
- Elvish Scripts
- Draconic Scripts
- Infernal Scripts
- Celestial Scripts
- Drudic Scripts
Languages are divided into standard and exotic languages. Choose your languages from the Standard Languages table, or choose one that is common in your campaign (Campaign Journal). With your GM’s permission, you can instead choose a language from the Exotic Languages table or a secret language, such as thieves’ cant or the tongue of druids.
