Languages in the Ring of Worlds

I like languages. It’s important to me to understand how to pronounce words when I see them, whether we’re talking Earthen tongues or invented languages straight from the author’s mind. Accent marks are a key element to understanding how to pronounce words, real or imagined.

You'll spot a smörgåsbord of diacritic-laden words from around the world and across the centuries in my books. You’ll also find a lot of accent marks in my conlang, Ôrëńos, which I co-crafted with Joseph W. Windsor. It’s a viable, naturalistic language, and every diacritic denotes a specific pronunciation that seldom varies.

Are the accent marks bugging you? By all means, ignore them. Your enjoyment of my work trumps any kind of pronunciative pedantry I’ve implied. If you don’t find the stories fun, then what’s the point, right?

I strove for accuracy and completeness in these books, but if I've missed anything or botched something, please help me correct my blunders. After all, 10,000 eyes are better than ten or twenty.
