About Jaic Like other Richitic languages, Jaic is spoken by both humans and avians. Unlike Crays, Jays faces little discrimination and do not have dark feathers. Jaic's phonology is complicated and distinct from other west spienic languages, and has a low consonant to vowel ratio compared to many languages. Jaic shares many features with Craic in grammar
