Celestial Laefêvëši or Ascended Laefêvëši, or simply Laefêvëši (pronounced [laeˈfɛːʋəʃi]), is an a priori conlang created by Andrej Schütz. The origins of the language date back to 2003, with major changes in grammar and vocabulary in 2012 - the version of the language used prior to the changes is now known as Classical Laefêvëši and it is an obsolete form. The version of the language that arose from the changes is now called Celestial Laefêvëši and it is the only version used. Initially intended to be a descendant language from the old version, it has since then taken an almost entirely new form. Most of the vocabulary was changed, there were several changes in phonology and orthography, the nominal and adverbial systems were altered, and the verbal system was nearly completely overhauled.

In the conworld context, Laefêvëši is spoken by a highly evolved subspecies of the Homo sapiens species. The planet is called Olilónien; it is essentially an Earth-like planet in a separete (parallel) unvierse. The planet is also inhabited by Homo sapiens sapiens.
