Agreed completely. It’s not even clear that the PK “regional dialect” is indeed Morskan. It bears a large number of similarities to Morskan, so it wouldn’t be crazy to think that it is, but it wouldn’t be crazy to think that it isn’t, either. I was just curious about whether Morskan has known features beyond what’s described in KGT, to which I strongly suspect the answer is “no”.

I think De'vID’s point that there could be multiple “Morskan” dialects is probably the best explanation for the differences we observe between the KGT explanation of Morskan and the ST VI and PK dialect performances. (Assuming that both of those are indeed Morskan, which might not necessarily be the case, even on Morska.)
