Hi everyone, I'm curious to find out what people think about dialogue and/or speech patterns in fantasy novels. I've noticed that a lot of fantasy novels tend to steer toward the old 'English' voice with proper, formal speech (very...medieval-esque). I've just written a draft of about 40,000 words in a YA fantasy story set between Earth and another world. I'm struggling to distinguish the differences between the different races' speech other than to mention that the inhabitants of this other world (which are human ancestors) have a different accent. I've thought about making their speech slightly more formal to distinguish but I don't want to change their mannerisms too much. I'd love some feedback, or to know if anyone else has had a similar problem. Thanks!
