Dwarven Agitator Gwent card art

Dwarven Speech is one of the older languages, a native one for the dwarves although it has become more of a second language for them. It is characterised by a large proportion of curses and swears.[1]

Dwarves are so assimilated into human society and convinced (on elves) about the harmfulness of chauvinism and the manifestation of otherness, that they use Common Speech not only when talking to humans, but even among themselves, playing cards. Their youth barely knows the Dwarven and uses it very reluctantly.[2]
