The elves of Kallarilan (now known as the Nelya) use a language called
Sórtal (the name simply means "magic language"). I never defined more
than a few dozen words of the language, but there does exist one phrase,
"Kavtar relennevo taxkarnol", a spell which had something to do with

the number collectors out there, here's the numbers 1-10 in Sórtal:

The language is actually very closely related to Cythin, one of the
regular spoken languages of the Nelya.
