The Gryphonian Alliance uses English, though some rules of grammar are changed, such as Don't to Do'nt, and the addition of new words such as repper, styke, and alleyoop. The writing system is standard modern-day Latin but straight bars between sentences are used instead of periods.

I have also sorted out a couple grammar features for Ikida. First, when ending sentences, all periods, question marks and exclamation points are put a space after the sentence (ex: "Is this a question ?" [ىڽ سلنتي ؟ ]), though this is sometimes ignored in informal circumstances (usually by newby foreigners).

Ikida also has a feature where the a, ā, and ı vowels are not required to be written when writing in the Arabic script (unless it's at the end of a word), so the word for a train station (sıtashın) can be spelled [ستشن or سىّتىشىّن]. Ikida words are structured so no diphthongs appear, which helps when written in Hangul/Hānkıl, and vowels are essentially implied in abjads like Arabic/Jawi, though obviously mandatory in alphabets like Hangul, so "sıtashın" can only be spelled "스따쓴" in Hangul.

Wolves of Sad Wolf typically cry for 95% of their days, making it necessary to establish a communication system revolving around their tears. It's called Sequential Tear Vocabulary and thoughts are expressed via the number of tears, velocity of tears, and different patterns of tears. There isn't any written language. Their eyes are too blurry to see.

Overthinkers has no official language and uses primarily English, but only due to its universal usage. People can often be heard chatting in Latin or Classical Greek as well. Text and internet slang is frowned upon.

The Allied States of Russellandd’s official language is English but there had been trends of  citizens using other languages more often. Some of them are actually beneficial like Newspeak which is great for communicating while constantly fighting in battlefields, languages of other nations which is great for not looking stupid when talking to someone who doesn’t know English, and slangs to make communication easier.
