Salt is a language spoken on Armada and in sea-faring towns around Rohagi as a common tongue for sailors from various locations.


Salt is described as "the sailors' argot, a found language riveted together from the thousand vernaculars of the Basilisk Channel, Ragamoll and Perrickish, the tongues of the Pirate and Jheshull Islands."

Bellis Coldwine found it easy to learn, since "its vocabulary was obvious, stolen as it was from other languages, and its syntax was easy."
