Helpful things for me to remember:
Arlathan was founded 3000 years before the first humans came to Thedas. By the time humans reached the continent, the Veil had already been erected and Elvhenan had shrunk down to just Arlathan; this is why the Dalish (and even most human history books) remember Arlathan but not Elvhenan. Somewhere over 2000 years between humans arriving and the Imperium conquering Arlathan. The Elves spent around 800 years enslaved in the Imperium. Less than 300 years between the founding and the fall of the Dales. Approximately 80 years between Ameridan’s disappearance and the fall of the Dales; approximately 800 years between his disappearance and the current Inquisitor finding him.
There would have been notable cultural differences between Elves in Elvhenan, Arlathan, the Imperium, the ancient Dales, and modern day. Elven as it was spoken in Elvhenan may not have been massively different from when it was spoken in Arlathan, but it would have been quite different from how it was spoken in the Imperium, the ancient Dales, and of course as it is now spoken by the Dalish. Everything we know about the ancient Dales and the time of Arlathan comes from the Dalish, but what we know of Elvhenan comes from Solas; in Dalish rememberings, information regarding Arlathan and the ancient Dales is often mixed and Elvhenan is basically forgotten.
This is what I’ve gleaned anyhow.
