Auran is a language of the air elementals of the Skywall. It is also known by conglomerates with the sub-type of air.[1] It may perhaps a dialect of Kalimag.

Etymology

Auran is derived from the word αὔρα (Anc. Greek for 'breath of wind','breeze'). It's the same word that passed into Latin as aura and via Latin into English, albeit with a different meaning. The term was coined by Galen to refer to an epileptic seizure. Its first usage can be found most conveniently in Kuhn's side-by-side translation into Latin.[2]
