If you think about how language evolves, you will see how it changes over a period of time. We might not notice it as much in our lifetime, but look into the past and see what popular phrases have evolved into in the past 200 years. The America first declared independence, I'm willing to bet that the people still spoke with a British accent and used popular terms of the day. But look at us now! So it is in book 2 of the Tokorel series. As the Ambassador from the home planet of Khizara, Linsora is faced with speaking with the leaders of the break off colony from 200 years earlier.

The Eyes of Tokorel
Assuming a ramrod straight posture, she placed her palm on the communication panel. “Tokorellan port control, please respond. I am Linsora Anselm, ambassador to Tokorel from Khizara, on board one of two Khizaran ships approaching your space. We intend no aggression and request your instructions on how to proceed.” Both Tokorellan and Khizaran had undergone the natural linguist evolution of two hundred years. The languages were still similar enough that a Khizaran could make out more or less what a Tokorellan was saying, but different enough that in-depth conversation was impossible. Linsora spoke no Tokorellan, but used Mercantile Standard. The language may have originated from some culture somewhere, but had become a universal standard. People of most races spoke their own language and locally accented Standard.
