|These are the words on an ornate brass hanging bell that we purchased. We do not know what language it is and would like to know and also what this means. Thank you so much|
|English translation:see below|
This is definitely Latin, but the spelling is not correct.
Pls check the spelling of each single word and repost it as a Latin>English question.

|The answer told me it was Latin but not the meaning. It was a start and I appreciate it. Thanks.|

Vocem meam audit qui me tangit: Whoever touches me hears my voice.
Original Latin inscription: Vocem meam audit qui me tangit.
It means: Whoever touches me hears my voice.
This is an inscription commonly found in bells (!). Sometimes a few words are abbreviated, as in your case. And often over time parts of the inscription are worn away.
