Labba (S."Lossothren", L."Lumikieli") is an archaic mannish tongue spoken by the Lossoth and Forodwaith.It bears some resemblence to archaic Quenya and seems to be related to several Easterling Languages, especially Folyavulthic, which is a descendant of Ulgathig.Labba is believed to descend from the Mornârin tongues of the Second Age, the Lossoth are sometimes believed to be descendants of Easterlings from the Folk of Bór and Uldor who escaped the drowning of Beleriand, other Scholars however believe them to be related to either the Daen-People or the Northrons and the Hadorians or to be relatives of the Urdor-People of the Northern Peninsula of Middle-Earth.

Early ICE-publications used modified Lapp and Inuit vacabulary as a language base for Labba, in later publications real-world Old Finnish was used instead to represent the language of the Lossoth.
