Parseltongue is the international Language of Serpents.
Parseltongue is a language of whispers and hisses, created by serpents for their own use. It is hard, although not impossible, for non-serpentine beings to pronounce it properly; wizards designed the Parselmouth Curse to get around how hard it was for most individuals to learn it on their own.
Due to the lack of socialization in the average serpent's lifestyle, Parseltongue is usually only spoken in rare occasions by serpents, and so has changed very little over space and time. Nonetheless, some words differ in the vernacular use from one region to another.
