Leaderboard (Top 6-Estimated)
Icelandic, Latin, Arabic, Mirandese, Galician, Basque, Tupi - Nheengatu, Occitan, Tagalog, Faroese, Cree, Cherokee, Hawaiian, Aymara, Quichua, Romansh.
A lingot for mentioning Faroese.
Tagalog has a beautiful sonority for me, and has a lot of Spanish influence, which is pretty interesting...
What kind of Romansh would you like to see?
- What spelling? Rumantsch Grischun? Or one of the ones based on real spoken varieties such as Vallader or Sursilvan (probably the two most alive variants)?
- What pronunciation should the TTS have? Just Rumantsch Grischun read aloud (which nobody speaks in real life, except perhaps a radio announcer or two)? Or one of the dialects - and if so, which one?
Probably Grischun, because it is a "standard" adaptation of the language. I had a classmate that said there are four variants, and when he lived in Graubünden he learned this version, which was very "artificial" for him.
As far as I know, Rumantsch Grischun is usually the most learned variant, so it may be the better choice, even being "very artificial". About the TTS, the pronunciation could be any of the most spoken, I just don't know which one I would pick...
For writing, it probably does make sense to learn RG.
I've usually heard of five variants (Sursilvan, Sutsilvan, Surmiran, Putèr, Vallader). Maybe your classmate dropped Sutsilvan (the least spoken), or maybe he put together Putèr and Vallader as "Engadinese".
The most vital (in the sense of "alive", not "important") seem to be Sursilvan and Vallader (not sure which of those would "win"), followed by Surmiran.
I think Sutsilvan would come dead last in terms of vitality. An interesting variant, though, covering (in its written form) spoken dialects that are more diverse than ony of the other four written forms, I believe.
Basque, Faroese, Dzongkha.
Thanks. I hope we get it, because I can find nothing else.
Latin, Japanese, Arabic (Standard), Finnish, Mandarin, Occitan, Ancient greek, Old english, Amharic, Mongolian.
Finnish, Icelandic, Hawaiian, Inuktitut, Latin, Arabic, Tagalog and maybe Sanskrit.
It's cool that my language is mentioned twice. Why do you want to learn Tagalog?
Lakota for English, Arabic for English, Latin for English or Spanish, Basque for Spanish, Italian for Catalan, Sicilian for Italian.
Luis said that he wants Arabic to come in 2016 so thats exciting ! Other than that, I would love Finnish. (I know this only because he was answering user questions on Quora on Tuesday)
Korean, Icelandic, Old English, toki pona, Mandarin, Tagalog, Quechua, Maori...
Catalan, Icelandic, Toki Pona, Scottish Gaelic, Lakota Sioux, Navajo, Elfdalian, Basque, Korean, Japanese, Manx, Latin, Cherokee, Mongolian, Hawaiian, Alaskan Native Languages, Mayan etc.
Maybe Japanese and Chinese are bit less likely to come because they are based on symbols rather than alphabets.
Well, a number of those listed here are already available (and a good thing, too!). The three languages that keep popping into my head that are not available yet are Thai, Latin and Icelandic. There are of course more as well, but those are the top three recurring choices in my imagination.
Latin, Ancient Greek, Chinese, Arabic, Estonian, Old Norse, Serbo-Croatian
Croatian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Latin, Icelandic, Finnish.
