About Leprechaun Welcome to the Leprechaun language, where words that sound normal are written as if a cat had walked on a keyboard, and words that are written normally sound like a Welsh person trying to speak Polish. Why? Because it's a celtic-based language and it's spelling is kinda similar to Irish but with some Welsh features.

The most of speakers live on the Leprechaun Island in Cyclopia and speak the Ins(Insh) dialect. The sentence structure is mainly VSO, the grammar is analytical and pretty much straightforward, which cannot really be said about the pronunciation. By the way, this language doesn't have the words "yes" and "no"
