I'm not quite sure. "Tech" does not exactly sound like
the name of an elf language, but rather like the
"metallic" language of a bunch of mindless killer
bots. I'm not saying that a beautiful language (which
is definitely the case here) must necessarily have a
beautiful name, but if you want the name to cover its
load somehow, I believe "Exian" would fit better.

comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe." --- J.
