Old Rhovanian is a language or family of languages that were spoken in Rhovanion in the early and middle Third Age, a descendant of the Eriedaic of the Second Age. There are several old rhovanian dialects:

All of these are represented by latinized Gothic. However the northern Rhovanian tongues of the men of Dale and Esgaroth and the names of the dwarves of Dúrin´s house are represented by Old Norse. At later times the descendants of the Northrons such as the Rohirrim and their kinsmen spoke languages that are represented by Anglo-Ssaxon (Éothéod and Beornings) or Old Frankish (some hobbit's and Radagast's names).
