Take a whiff! You don't listen to this language. You sniff it! This is the olfactory/secretory language of the beings inhabiting the planet Lifehome. The Lifehomers produce special pheromones in glands under their skin which they secrete into the air in patterened combinations to effect communication. This mode of communication is not effective over distance or in windy conditions since messages can be distorted or blown away, so Lifehomers tend to stand close together during communication and pay close attention to wind patterns. One might assume that public speaking would not be possible under these constraints but in controlled environments fans may be used to amplify the distances which a message may travel in coherent form.
