A constructed language by Sean K. Reynolds.

Published in Dragon #278 (Dec 2000), page 44. "Dwarven is a language of low vowels and hard consonants... Mr. Reynolds suggested that the Dwarves laid great importance on proper names, which translates to how they use nouns. Dwarven nouns are usually listed first, followed by a string of adjectives. Often smaller words are combined into larger ones, even if one of the words is a name. Sometimes, words that would be excessively long or confusing are broken into smaller, compound words. For example: 'Gimli, brave in war, loyal friend, with the adamantine greataxe Hurkuk'... Gimli kurnzarnnar mervar nos hurkuk farnyrgumdek.
