Jel is a language spoken by Argonians. It is described as a language that is described as "the closest speech to thought." A way of conversing communally with the Hist.[1] Unlike many Tamrielic languages, Jel is not derived from Ehlnofex but comes from the ancient and sentient trees, the Hist.[1] The language is sometimes erroneously referred to as Saxhleel, which is the Argonian name for themselves.
