Achaean languages and phonetics
Obviously, Achaean languages are a convoluted mix of criss-crossing real-life languages and made-up stuff, but there are, at least in some cases, pretty solid examples of what Achaean languages sound like- the most obvious example being the link between Arabic and Shallamese.
Of course, Tritonic states seem to all speak Greek, or something close to it.
What do you all suppose the major City-states' languages sound like? If there is even an approximation that makes sense. I always found it strange, for instance, that Cities would have random Chinese/Japanese-inspired Houses, that use words from those actual languages, despite the City's language not resembling either of those at all.
Racial languages obviously have their own roots and phonetic character, but I wonder if they had/have a part to play in the development of City-states' languages.
