If you’re writing fantasy, I’m guessing you’re creating your own world. Unless this is some kind of “Other Earth” scenario, historical fantasy, or science fantasy that involves our actual Earth. Otherwise, you’re going to be doing a lot of world building.
World building isn’t just terrain and continents. It’s culture building, and with culture, there’s language. Problem is, you have to tell it in a “real world” (living) language.
With that, let’s dive into language in fantasy. This is not going to be a language building post, but more of a how to use language in your writing. I’ll cover more on language building in another post.
