English

English is the most commonly spoken language of Shorewell, and is its official language. All transactions, governmental affairs, business, etc. are conducted in English. It is the birth language of about 50% of Shorewell's citizens, and is fluently spoken by around 90% of the population.

Urdu

Urdu is a frequently spoken language, with many books written in it (and being kept in the Library of Emeralds). A vast number of people in Shorewell can speak Urdu fluently, or have it as the mother tongue. Even with the considerable use of Urdu in Shorewell, the official language remains English to keep international affairs stable.

Arabic

Arabic is occasionally spoken and learned throughout the Empire. However, the library oversees the administration of it due to the fact that many books and important texts are translated from Arabic to English.

Biljish
