SENTIENT RACES OF OERTH - Updated (Format)

SENTIENT RACES OF OERTH
(Of Average Intelligence or Greater)*

Probably a number of creatures that could be found in a Gygaxian campaign are missing. If anyone notices any please let me know. 

I have noted any creatures which have their own spoken languages specifically mentioned. Specific languages listed are those mentioned as known though not necessarily all languages known.

* Minor exceptions for language using monsters of less than average intelligence

NOTE: The line length on this article is a mess and I haven't been able to work out a correction for it just yet.
