This project has mostly been moved to Darnassian/speculation.
The Darnassian language Society is an attempt to complete the Darnassian Language. We have already translated and desciphered some phrases and words in order to get a more direct meaning. This will hopefully allow us to make a complete dictionary from all Darnassian words that exist for now; thus also giving us the room to provide the language with (a whole lot of) new words - so that it can be used as an ordinary language.
We will of course also work on grammar.
This is a fan-based language, not officially endorsed by Blizzard, and not in any way official or canon.
Here follows the words and phrases - as seen in the official Darnassian page:

Grammar rules Edit

Related Languages Edit
Both the Naga, High Elves, and the Blood Elves speak languages derived from Darnassian. The Naga, once night elves themselves, now twisted by the terrible powers of the Old Gods, speak their Nazja, which is as corrupted as the creatures who speak it. The language of the High elves, who were exiled from Kalimdor, changed into what is now known as Thalassian. This also appears to be the language of the Blood Elves, though it was earlier known as Sindassi.
Darnassian, Thalassian, and Najza seem to have many common phrases, as is evidenced by Prince Kael'Thas' use of "Ishnu'alah", Lady Vashj's "Ishnu'dal'dieb", as well as the names of the different elf subtypes, the Kaldorei, Quel'dorei, and Sin'dorei. The high elves have very long life spans compared to humans, so Thalassian might be so similar to Darnassian that it would be more correct to call it a dialect, rather than a separate language.
