It does make me wonder:  what languages are being spoken in the 5GW?
Cedonian seems to be structured similarly to Greek.  Are the other
languages like our world's tongues in the same way their nations and
cultures are versions of ours?

I suppose the Prayer to the White God would have to be regarded as an
inspired 'poetic reimagining' of the Chalionese version, since it's
English-specific.  (But then again, the Ring inscription is much more
powerful in English than in either the Black Speech or any form of Elvish,
making it clear from an extra-universe perspective how it was composed.)
