Riekling

Author:

The Riekling language is only found in the Dragonborn expansion for Elder Scrolls V. Very little of it is directly translated, so most translations in this dictionary are derived from the names of the dialog topics they're triggered by. In other words, while the general meaning and connotation can be assumed to be accurate, the exact wording is not.

Due to the limited nature of this language, I've listed small phrases as one translation rather than breaking them up into individual words.
