>Why do Orcs speak Giant and Common, but Goblins get their own entire god damn language?
As far as I know, that's only the case with 4e. I believe that all previous editions had orcish. With that said, furthering the process of language consolidation that 3e started is, I think, a good thing. When there are too many languages, there are too many times that too many people can't communicate, and the language barrier just ends up getting ignored. With a smaller, more manageable number of languages, it becomes more feasible to actually use them as intended. With this in mind, the reason goblins have their own language while orcs don't is that there are a number of goblinoid races, but only one orcish race.
