From Project 1999 Wiki
Many of the EverQuest races have their own unique language. Languages can be taught to other races.
Players are able to talk to each other in different languages, however the messages will be encrypted if the player being talked to does not have a sufficient Language level.
Some races have their own unique languages, which are more difficult to decipher than the populous languages.
The primary method of learning languages is to have them spoken to a player through the chat command "/gs <text>," or through a custom channel.
A table of languages and who speaks them is found below. The number behind some races is the language skill those races start out with. For example Gnomes start with 54 skill in Dwarvish and Dwarves with 25 skill in Gnomish.
Races/Classes without a number behind them start with that language maxed out at 100.
