Swedish possibly. 'Tones' might be the wrong word. I was trying to get over the idea that any differences between "storm", "Orlanth", "Orlanth Rex" etc would be subtle and difficult to translate rather than the clear distinction there is in English. With the appropriate confusion possible for anyone who hasn't a mastery of the language.
