  • Ancient languages are written only — scholars can only guess at proper pronunciation.

  • Low Speech languages represent the ability to communicate with lower life forms. This grants semi-empathic communication rather than true speech.

  • Wizard Speech is telepathic communication, across languages and without need of sound.
