My language Khangathyagon was, in the story which it forms part of, the original language of humanity, which they learned from the Creator in the days when he walked amongst them. In those days the language had no name. Other languages diverged from it because of cultural change, but wizards preserved it because they found that they could not formulate spells in the new languages. At the time of the story's setting, it is spoken only by wizards, who are able to learn languages rapidly because of a spell called "The Ears of the Infant". Its name means "Magic-language".
