I'm interested in mythology surrounding language; all sorts, but particularly involving specific deities or supernatural beings and language-creation myths. For example the Tower of Babel, Enki as the confuser of languages, Mnemosyne, Hermes, Saint Brigit.

What other interesting figures or stories are out there?

Edit to add: any Classics buffs know if there's a specific story or association with Hermes' rooster symbol? It seems the most obviously connected to his communicative aspect but I'm not finding anything specific.
