The Jhray telepathic language consists of sensory
signs, all based on smell/taste or their telekinetic tactile
sense. Some of these signs are representative, others
conventional. So, of course, none our phonetic
representations of Jhray names, etc. are native. Many
are from the Briacite language (q.v.), including "Jhray"
I haven't worked out the details, for obvious reasons.
