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 transformation, dragons, and crystals (I don't recall exactly what). For the number collectors out there, here's the numbers 1-10 in Sórtal: or, tse, rel, sel, cha, kyem, xar, layéch, yatch, for The language is actually very closely related to Cythin, one of the regular spoken languages of the Nelya.
