What's the point in going halfway.
If you're going to show-off that you've dived into the made up character lore to spice up your own RP. Don't be surprised when the person you're trying to RP with turns around and either walks away or says "Are you alright?"
May as well speak the full sentences in the Drow tongue if you're clever enough to remember every aspect of it.
Or... as Tsid and others have said. If you're in a specific society location, the common (default in NWN2) could be argued to be their local common tongue wherever you are. IF you're in company of mixed races... then use the in game widget.
Just because someone either doesn't know the local racial language OOCly mind you (ie this starts diving into the meta game realm), or doesn't visit the forums, and then goes to look for a particular thread, they shouldn't be disadvantaged in the game in regards to racial languages, espcially since mechanically their character DOES know the language ICly.
This entire thread can be supplanted to any racial language for that manner in game.
Using Common to actually mean other languages is pretty common in surface elf RP, especially when doing combat with the log being unreadable.
