In I wrote: 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" itself.
