DwarfWeek - Day three: Dwarven languages

“The Dwarven language was created by Aulë, and was called Khuzdul. It was a strange language to Elves and Men, and few non-Dwarves learned it, because it was difficult, and the Dwarves kept it secret, preferring to communicate in the languages of their neighbors. Only one Khuzdul phrase was well known to outsiders: the ancient battle cry, going back to at least the First Age: “Baruk Khazâd! Khazâd ai-mênu!”, which means “Axes of the Dwarves! The Dwarves are upon you!”. The Dwarves taught Khuzdul carefully to their children, as a learned language, not a cradle-tongue, and thus the language changed very little over the ages, unlike those of other races. The Dwarves also devised a secret language of gestures to communicate between themselves in silence, the iglishmêk.“ 

"The Dwarves used Angerthas, a runic writing system based on Cirth. There were different variations of Angerthas, which varied by each Dwarven clan; the Dwarves of Khazad-dum had their own variation and introduced a number of unsystematic changes in the system. The Dwarves of Erebor also used a further modification of the system, which was known as Angerthas Erebor. Some examples of Angerthas were seen in notable Dwarven texts, including the Book of Mazarbul, Thror’s Map, as well as other objects such as the Key to the hidden door, the key which was given to Thorin Oakenshield.”
