About Leprechaunian Welcome to the Leprechaunian language, where's words that sound normal are written as if a cat had walked on a keyboard, and words that are written normal sound like a Welsh person trying to speak Polish! Why? Because it's a celtic-based language and it's orthography is kinda similar to Irish but not exactly like it.

Spoken by leprechauns(obviously) in my conworld, mainly on the Leprechaun Island in Cyclopia. This language isn't mutually intelligeble with any other but the closest languages to Leprechaunian are Elemental, Arachnese, Shadowese and Insectian.

It's a VSO language, which means that tge verb is the first in a sentece. Leprechaunian has easy analytical grammar, but not really easy phonology. By the way, there's also no the "yes" and "no" words in Leprechaunean just like it's being said about Scottish and Irish(but for some reason there are those words in dictionaries)
