I know some authors who based the languages of their world on our own.

I can't remember in which book, but Raymond E. Feist used spanish words when the characters talking came from Bas-Tyra. I'm sure he used some french, japanese and maybe other language too in some of his books.

True, it could lead to a pretty bleak and unoriginal world if the stories aren't good. But I'm sure that, with a good world-building, most reader wouldn't mind. view post
