A Word About Fey Words – Celebrae

.

Celebrae is the ancient, root language of the Fey of the Light.  It is a gentle, elegant language filled with soft sounds spoken upon the tip of the tongue and pronounced near the front of the mouth. As a result is it often quiet in tone or light in inflection. Its vowel sounds are clear and crisp as well as delicate and lush.
