I was reading another discussion (I don't exactly remember where), and I have some questions.

1. Is it better to speak to deities of a certain pantheon in their own language? (like Greek pantheon in Greek, Irish in Gaelic, etc.)

2. Are there languages that are considered more 'magical' than others? Like, is the fact that they're dead/obscure make it easier to lose yourself in the spell/ritual (because of the psychology of it?)

3. Are there certain sounds/styles of languages that are better suited to certain rituals? Like, would a love ritual be better in a flowery language like Italian than a choppy language, like say, German? or does that tie into the psychology of it too?

4. are their certain sounds that are inherently magical? (like some people say that "Om" is)

5. does all this hold true for made up languages like elvish?
