A person or group of persons who has neither studied nor practices magic is said to be a gruntling or gruntlings. She may less commonly be called a 'grunterer' or a 'gruntish fellow.' The term can be translated into virtually all languages of the Pallathantic and has a currency of millennia. The descriptive term is gruntish. It is slightly disparaging, but neutral terms like 'unwizard' and 'witchless' have not gained wide acceptance among the spellcasting class of society among their own kind. Most wizards are careful to use the terms with delicacy and tact around gruntlings, prefering to use euphemisms or circumlocutions like unwizards, persons differently trained from magic, outside experts, and so on.
