If Abeir-Toril means "cradle of life", since they are sundered, I am curious which means what exactly. Is Abeir cradle or life, leaving Toril as which? @TheEdVerse

“Abeir” means life, vitality, the experience of living, and the cycle of life (depending on context, i.e. the words around it). “Toril” means cradle, home, cauldron, dwelling-place, or welcoming arms (again, depending on the… 2)

The language they were part of became Aragrakh (Old High Wyrm), though a few scattered words also found their ways into other archaic tongues.#Realmslore
