Ariivud (Ariivúk) is a language isolate spoken by the Arii people and is the lingua franca of the Arin people, a confederation of about six million peoples on an island chain across the Pacific. Common Ariivud, or (Ariivúknabs), is considered the standard dialect of Ariivud, with many other dialects depending on geography.
Ariivud can be divided into about thirteen dialects. The dialects usually differ in areas of pronunciation and phonetics whereas the grammar is consistent across the dialects with some small variation mainly in verb conjugations. Cultural and social emphasis on homogeny within Arii culture has slowly pushed the dialects closer and closer to Ariivúknabs.
Ariivud is an agglutinative language with a Nominative-Accusative case system and declensions with complicated verb conjugations and adjective agreement. Ariivud has three genders: masculine, feminine and neuter as well as three numbers: single, dual, and plural.
