Elemental is the language spoken by Elementals for several thousand years, created by the First King of Elementals, to unify them around the world. Though dialects have formed, all elementals can basically understand each other.

Flaps cannot occur in an initial or ultimate position, and lateral approximants cannot occur beside fricatives at all. Palatalized nasals only occur in the initial position. The syllable pattern of Elemental is (C (C) C) (V) V (C). This, translated, means that a syllable can exist with an initial consonant, or an initial consonant cluster, followed by up to two vowels, and a final vowel.
The pattern for a consonant cluster is (Stop), (Fricative), (approximant). Thus, the biggest syllable allowed is something like Tsraok (Elemental).
