The Adamic or celestial language is the official language of the Holy Kingdom of Deseret and the state-sponsored Restored Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (RLDS). The language, which is believed by church members to have been a divine proto-language predating human speech, has been partially recreated by the Church's Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and Prophet-President Cowdery Young from nineteenth-century Mormon documents. For instance, the Adamic words for God (Ahman) and angels (Anglo-man) are taken from the writings of Church leader Orson Pratt.

Due to the highly limited vocabulary of the present Adamic language, American English (rendered in the Deseret alphabet) is largely utilized in its place.
