Glossalia

Glossalia is a lingua franca used by spirits, most mortals are incapable of learning it without going through certain rites. Even hearing the language spoken is an uncomfortable experience to the uninitiated, often leading to mild cases of nausea or vertigo. Some claim that it is not actually a language, but a mental state as adjurators who have been through the Glossalia Blessing are almost immediately fluent in it.

Ghosts and other incorporeal or extraplanar entities may also have some degree of fluency in Glossalia, but this will vary from being to being.

When rendered in written form Glossalia takes the form of runic inscriptions that seem to shift and move under the eyes of the reader. It is, however, rare to see Glossalia written down, mostly adjurators will use this for creating wards and making tools rather than using it to write documents.
