Not all pronunciations are the same in any language even to the D'ni language there must have been some variation in the way people spoke D'ni.
Look at any modern Language.
You have pronunciation and writing from people who live close to each other but they speak and write differently.
What you are saying is all spoken and written D'ni was exactly the same no mater where you went?
That would be like saying all English is said and written the same all over the world.
We know it's not.
That is why it's hard to translate one language into another there is always the translator's subliminal mind working out how it should be said in the translation.
That is my opinion.

On the other hand, most of the D地i both lived in one place (the Cavern), and all had the same origin (Garternay), so language differences would have likely been mostly restricted to classes (upperclass D地i such as Aitrus and Veovis would likely have had a different vocabulary than lowerclass D地i). Only in some of the oldest Ages were there actual D地i colonies, and it is possible they spoke a different dialect. But contact between the colonies and the City was constant, and dialects typically evolve through isolation of groups, so it is not likely there were distinct D地i dialects.


(can a Mod split this language discussion to a new topic maybe?)

The aboriginal tribes of Australia always were in contact with the other.
When one group broke away from a tribe to go there own way they still had contact with each other regularly (unless it was to another area further away) to help in a hunt but developed there own sayings and language over a time.
Today there is a lot of different dialects in Aboriginal Australia from people that live 50klm away from each other and still go into town and mix regularly.

You could also write: 'retihmehlokh kaidihsh'. {retimelok KADiS}

In D'ni it's "The gallery of Kadish"

I believe that when they found the Book of Terahnee, in BoD, it was written in a different form of D'ni, with different symbols and all, which could mean that the Ronay spoke a different language from which D'ni and Terahnee developed. From what little D'ni is spoken between the Terahnee and D'ni in the book, however, it seems that the spoken language varied little, but the written language may have.

shorah all.

it is interesting to note your discussion of languages and the transliterating of them into English.

i know enough of languages (speak four myself and have had extensive linguistics courses) to know that from certain scripts, there are no perfect transliterations of some languages. for example, the word "debkeh" in arabic script may easily and correctly be transliterated as "debkeh", "dabkeh" or "dabki" or "debki". none of these transliterations are incorrect, because when you transliterate these back into arabic, they all have the same script.

the same is true in armenian: one may live four miles from another in armenia; one may say "shnoorah gahleb", and the other may say "shnoorah khaleb" - both are correct because there are regional differences... after all, who in English will say "to-MAY-to" is the correct pronunciation of the word "to-MAH-to"? they are both correct and both proper. even though i do not understand the details of the D'ni language, certainly this could be the case where there are more than one correct "spellings" of a word.

salaam!

Man I could have really used that when I was first playing Uru. I couldn't see half the clues because my graphics card couldn't display them correctly.
