    Just out of curiosity, and forgive me if this is too off topic, but will Rubick himself be able to speak demonic once he steals and casts one of the Demon spells? I'd love to hear some Ozkavosh coming from his voice acting.
    Also, where does Lion fit in with all of this? Is he himself a demon, or a mere practitioner?
    Hey, I just met you.

      Neither. He chased a demon home, beat it to death with it's own arm, and claimed that arm as a trophy. It's corrupted him.

          Well, when you fill your basement with demonologists, you're expecting them to summon demons. Such as Akasha. It would be cool to have a hint of an ally line in Ozkavosh in her voicework.

            And while we're at it and if anyone's actually reading this, I'm still curious as to what does Shadow Demon say in his ambient Disruption line. You know, the one that isn't a hero response but in fact is a spell effect sound - it's clearly something in Ozkavosh.
            Heroes this user should seriously reconsider ever picking again.

                It's not. The line isn't even in his arrangement of hero responses; it is something among the lines of "Shaq'mi karathuk". Try and listen to the ambient sounds when somebody is disrupted; the sound plays for about 2 seconds.

                Soul Catcher has a similar one, but it's just a simple "Ozh".

                    Oh wow this is really cool.

                    I'll keep a Ozkavosh word list handy in case I ever have to improve a bad guys talking when I DM.

                    Also I'm a super-noob to dota but could someone pleas enplane why demons would be using base 7?

                      In Christianity, 7 circles of Hell and 7 deadly sins. Either that or it's a coincidence.

                        Isn't the 7 circles of hell just fanon that Dante and/or some other dude just made up?

                        But anyway that explanation makes some sense.

                          To be fair, the entire Bible is fanon. It contradicts itself a few thousand times because it was written by multiple people. Dante's visions of the afterlife became pretty much accepted, as far as I know.

                          Dante's Inferno has 9 circles though, not 7.

                            I love the fact that there is an actual dictionary for it. Lovely. I wonder if Valve even have a proper syntax for this language, and such. I'd love for it to be fully fleshed out like that. The more reasons for people to fanboy and obsess over the depth of the game the better.

                            Also, I wonder if we can also get a (probably not as in-depth) dictionary for the languges that other heroes say. Bounty Hunter?

                              It would be nice if Broodmother, Weaver and Nyx speak to each other in insect language =)). Yeah yeah I know they are not even in the same race or world.

                              According to dota2 wiki, QoP is not really a young demon, she might even be a lot more powerful than sf/doom/sd
                              Nyx was the daughter of Aether, whose name translates into Sanskrit as "Akasha", Queen of Pain's name.
                              According to this, QoP is a grandmother of Nyx Assassin.
                              So the QoP gave a birth to "Goddess" Nyx, which, altho i am not 100% sure, is some kind of big insect. So, according to how sex works irl, that means she had sex with some sort of insect.
                              What demon will mix different species? Either qop is lower demon, slave, dirtblood etc, or she is not a demon at all.

                                You can infer some gramatical rules from the lines such as the oddity of their parts of speech.
                                Basically, there's no distinction between a noun, verb, or adjective that I can see. Rule, ruler, and to rule are all the same word and there's no conjugation or declension of verbs, nouns, or adjectives to be seen anywhere (besides icha/acha/ucha which is used to create quasi-verbs some of the time).
                                There's also some sentence construction fun bits, mainly to do with the usage of "ozh" (something reflective of the demonic emphasis upon the individual).
                                I don't bite.
