Kalimag is the standard language spoken by all elementals.[1][2] Kalimag is an obscure tongue spoken only by a few scholars, for the native speakers (elementals) are rarely encountered in any sort of friendly capacity.[3]

Kalimag appears to have several dialects including Ignan (fire), Aquan (water), Terran (earth), and Auran (air). One dialect exists for each elemental type living on the Elemental Plane. Elemental conglomerates are known to speak two or more of these dialects depending on elements they are made from.[4]

The Frostmourne Pedestal had Kalimag written on the dais. Apparantly, Muradin Bronzebeard can read Kalimag.[5]

Sample Kalimag

Note: Phrases originate from the in-game parser system (see below) but represent some of the only use of "Kalimag" in game.

  • Kranu sto aer'rohgmar --Captured Water Spirit, during the quest Neutral 15 [70+] Escape from Coilskar Cistern
  • Ma reth bromo zoln kilagrin dra ma zoern tu ko fraht ka tadrom Ma krin drinor zaln dirnor Ma krin kan aasrugel korsul --Manifestation of Water
  • Reth Reth Reth --Living Fire Possibly means "Burn Burn Burn" given the nature of the elemental who says this.
  • T ma suz'ahn reth T ma fiilrok tadrom dra T krin os nuk talsa reth krin shone sto toro tu ko zoln reth -- Minor Manifestation of Fire
  • T ma toro nuk krast'ven fmerk -- Wayward Fire Elemental

Sample Words (speculation)

Questionmark-medium
This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

This is the list of words created by the in-game language parser for the Kalimag language, and is listed as language number twelve (word range 1029-1150) in the Language text file.

Note: The language algorithm used by the in-game "translator" merely makes the words look like "Kalimag". It does not actually translate words. Therefore, translated in-game speech isn't true "Kalimag".

Word & Phrase List (speculation)

  • Reth Reth Reth = May mean "Burn Burn Burn" or perhaps "Fire Fire Fire". However, this word also appears in text of Manifestation of Water - then again, both occurrences are within the game, created with the game's limited vocabulary. They likely mean different words, which are then 'translated' into the same 4-letter word.
