For books 9 through 13 there are a lot of mentions of the Novan Language, how it came to exist and why the Novas speak it. So for book 13 TS:Starchild when Caelan returns to the Nova Realm, he takes the time to learn how to speak Novan, and I took the time to write up the Language using a combination of northern European and Scandinavian languages with Latin.
According to Ira, the ruler of the Nova Realm, the language came up from the ground when the hosts of the field spoke their words into it. The hosts must have been from these northern European countries, and Ira knows that he was the one who spoke English into the land, and Irwin–the last host–spoke Latin into it. Most of the Novas speak English, but it is the Novas in the southernmost regions that speak primarily Novan.
Make words plural by adding I (ee) to the end, if the first letter is a vowel add e (ay)
