A constructed language by Sean K. Reynolds & Owen K.C. Stephens.

Published in Dragon #284 (Jun 2001). "Draconic is a language of hard consonants and sibilants that usually sounds like hissing when spoken. It includes sounds that sound very snake-like to humans, including: /sj/, /ss/, and /sv/. It also includes a sound similar to a creature clearing its throat, like the German 'ach'. Mr. Reynolds wrote that words which modify other words can be place before, or after, the words they modify, however the most important word is always placed before, and sometimes, for added emphasis, might be added after, as well. So, a dragon that wanted to say a big, black, evil dragon was coming near...might say: Malsvir darastrix turalisj vutha gethrisj leirith [evil dragon big black go near]."
