I wan intrigued by its description, especially the fragment:
As for the plot:The first alien language in a work of science fiction may have been Percy Greg's Martian language in his 1880 novel Across the Zodiac
It's long, though. Ca. 170k words.The book details the creation and use of apergy, a form of anti-gravitational energy, and details a flight to Mars in 1830. The planet is inhabited by diminutive beings; they are convinced that life does not exist elsewhere than on their world, and refuse to believe that the unnamed narrator is actually from Earth. (They think he is an unusually tall Martian from some remote place on their planet.)
The book's narrator names his spacecraft the Astronaut.
