  5. New round of "guess the next …

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

New round of "guess the next new incubator language"! (February 2017 edition)

We haven't had one of these in a while, so let's play! (Please do read the instructions before guessing; only valid guesses will be acknowledged.)

Guess which completely new (ie. not part of an existing course at any stage of the Incubator) language will be announced next in the Incubator. It doesn't matter which other language it is paired with.

This means the idea is not to guess a course: Swahili for Klingon speakers, Yiddish for Guarani speakers, or Arabic for any kind of speakers would not be valid guesses, as the correct answer will be a language, not a course, and all these languages already exist as part of current Incubator courses, anyway. In contrast, Latin, Finnish, or Chamicuro are examples of valid guesses.

For a quick way of checking which languages are already at any stage of the Incubator, see the Duolingo Wikia: http://duolingo.wikia.com/wiki/Course_list.

Each user can post one guess. The first user to post the correct guess (as determined by when the notifications about the guesses land in my inbox) will receive 100 lingots from yours truly once we find out what the correct one is, and the second one to post that guess wins 50 lingots. Any further users having guessed that language will receive 10 lingots each. The competition is thus open until a new language is added.

I am trusting that any contributors or staff members who have inside information disqualify themselves from this competition... ;-)

(See here and here for a couple of the earlier versions of this game.)

Good luck, everyone!

We can always dream. :-)

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/IanShales

Haha!!!

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MeleeNess23

I'm gonna be bold, but this is just a pipe dream.

Icelandic/Íslenska

It's no surprise that Iceland is becoming popular with its beautiful scenery and volcanoes with unpronouncable names, and their soccer team is really stepping it up!

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

That would indeed be nice!

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/.harlequinsmile.

I've seen it on previous. Not that out of the blue.

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MeleeNess23

It's mostly the fact that I really want it, but I don't think it's going to be a higher priority than more spoken languages like Finnish and Serbo-Croatian.

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/.harlequinsmile.

I agree. It'd be fun to learn though.

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/kubelnaby

Those are all valid reasons to learn this language, but to many people the most important one is its closeness to Old Norse dialects.

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SteveLando

I will keep saying Latin, until it gets here:)

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Strandfloh

Still hoping for Latin, too :-)

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

OK! You're the second one guessing Latin, then.

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Klara-Ilona

Me too! (Latin!)

March 10, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

You are now on the long list of Latin guessers in this game. :-)

March 17, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Good luck! :-)

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AnnaGuaGua

don't hold your breath waiting lol

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Koschy

Mee too

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Third one for Latin! :-)

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MarcinM85

Persian.

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

A very good candidate, indeed!

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TheEeveeLord

Hawaiian. Probably won't be the case, but who knows?

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Well, they did have a plan for endangered native languages at some point, so there's always a chance!

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TheEeveeLord

I think Duolingo would be perfect for endangered native American languages as it'll give the languages plenty of publicity and these languages generally don't have a lot of resources, and Duolingo is a great resource for any language.

I would really like to see Inuktitut, but Hawaiian and Cherokee seem like the most likely to get courses.

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Duolingo had a plan at some point... Have a look at this: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/15670097.

ქართულ ენას მინდა, გთხოვთ! (Georgian)

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Ah, that pretty script! OK. :-)

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AnnaGuaGua

wow that's pretty!

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/piguy3

Super phonetic, too, despite its 1500 year history.

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/garpike

This would be more a plus point if said super-phoneticism were not employed in creating words that are completely unpronounceable... ('nine', for instance!)

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/piguy3

By coincidence I have in the last few minutes braved this word in the Beginner's Georgian Memrise course :)

I think I'll take "nine" over "water"!

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/garpike

Water I can say, but it certainly took me a while (for one word!) Talking of which things, the word for 'word' (სიტყვა) took me even longer. I don't have any problems with uvular ejective any more, but I still can't for the life of me reliably pronounce the combination /t͡sʰxr/.

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/TimmohB

Mandarin..

I really want Finnish though.

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

With Chinese already in the Incubator (as part of no less than three courses), I don't think I can really count Mandarin as a valid guess...

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/widle

Thanks for doing another round!

I'm going to be consistent and guess Slovak again.

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

One of these rounds you'll probably be right... ;-)

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/widle

Probably not this one yet, though. It'll be more likely after Czech is out.

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

But Czech is moving like a (slowish, but still) steam train, and we don't know how long this competition will be going on for...

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/widle

True.

Also I just remembered that most languages start by English for X speakers, in which case there is no reason to wait for anything.

We'll just have to wait and see. :)

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

It's very good, because it's the most needed for people who can't afford education. They need same oppotunities for all fo them, by being able to speak English.

March 5, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/.harlequinsmile.

you'll get there soon, I think.

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/.harlequinsmile.

hmm, why not. Just for laughs, Sanskrit :)

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

OK! :-) You never know...

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/.harlequinsmile.

true, more of just for laughs as in, I'm pretty sure it's an almost completely dead language.

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

I think the Incubator has seen stranger picks than that... ;-)

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/.harlequinsmile.

Such as Klingon...

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/maria.nils

Amharic - more because it deserves a mention than because I actually believe it. But then again, anything can happen on Duolingo.

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Indeed! :-)

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/linguafiqari

Thank you for mentioning Amharic!

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Thismanneedstop

mongolian cause why not

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Indeed! :-)

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ZaneReif

I believe Finnish is by far the the most requested language at the moment, so that would have to be my guess.

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Yours seems to be the second post actually guessing Finnish, so you're in for a chance of 50 lingots!

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/israelpolasak

English for Kannada lol, however I really hope it's a language like Afrikaans!

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

So...would you like to restate that guess in a format that's within the rules of the game...? ;-)

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/israelpolasak

Ok then my guess is Kannada :P

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

OK! :-) It's probably quite a good one, as well...

March 1, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/CristobalTG

Estonian!

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

That would indeed be great! :-)

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/finndj

Nepali. Seeing as Duo has been adding many Indian languages, I feel as though Nepal would be a logical next place to go, seeing as it has seen no support yet on Duo, and the region it is spoken in is somewhere Duo seems to fairly focused on.

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Interesting! Your guess has been noted.

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Petja.

Icelandic.

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

OK, that's the third guess for Icelandic. :-)

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SleepInTheHeat

Farsi (Persian)

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Already a fourth guess for Farsi! :-) Duolingo, are you listening? ;-)

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WildSage

Klingon for High Valyrian Speakers

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WaterPolyglot

The rules say that you're not supposed to guess a course, you're supposed to guess a language.

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WildSage

Whoosh.

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Treissi

Lithuanian

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

A lot of people interested in the roots of the Indo-European languages would probably appreciate this one!

March 3, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/otsogutxi

Tok Pisin - There has been a trend of languages like Bengali, Tagalog, and a country with so much language diversity should have a language in the Incubator by now:)

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Cool! (And well argued!)

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Irusejka

I would also like this one!

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

OK, I'll note you as the second user guessing Tok Pisin.

Edit: Sorry, I now see this was just a preference, not your actual guess. I've noted Cebuano/Bisaya as your actual guess.

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/garpike

I guess Marathi—the most-spoken Indian language currently not on Duolingo.

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

After the previous round of this game, I was so convinced Marathi would be the next one that I put off arranging another round until that one was published. :-) But then a couple of other languages were picked, and now it's been 7 months, so widle talked me into doing one again...

That's the rambling version of "I think you might be right". :-p

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/garpike

I should be very happy to be wrong if it turns out to be any of the three most popular guesses... And considering how they recently bowled us a googly with Haitian Creole, a lot of the more obscure suggestions seem much less inconceivable. But the odds certainly seem to favour something from India.

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ryannichols7

I'll be the second person to guess Farsi/Persian, because it's the one I want most.

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Sure! :-)

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/w1ndh0ek

My guess is Bulgarian :P

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Not unlikely at all, actually!

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/fr224

I will also guess Marathi, along with garpike. I recall jitengore saying that Marathi was in the wings just after English courses for Tamil and Bengali (or maybe Telugu) were added.

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

OK, so that's why I was so convinced it would be picked... Sure -- your guess has been noted!

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Espiraden

Croatian hopefully :) Though i would love to have Arabic added here !

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

OK, you are the second user to guess Croatian. :-)

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mreaderclt

No one has guessed Basque, yet, so I'll take that one.

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Noted! :-)

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ccassiday

Wishful thinking: Afrikaans

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Sure! :-)

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Noted! :-) I'd love to understand even more of the lyrics by Frændur and Eivør.

March 1, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AnnaGuaGua

someone already guessed it, but Icelandic

if I need a new guess, Arabic

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

It's fine to guess the same as someone else (but not fine to guess Arabic ... as per the rules :-p ).

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AnnaGuaGua

oh oops missed that part. I will admit I skimmed the rules. :) hmmm then just Icelandic.

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

There's always one otherwise sensible user doing that... :-p

Yup, I've got you down for Icelandic and the chance of winning 50 shiny, incredibly valuable lingots if you are indeed right!

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/bacalaoist

Latvian

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Interesting -- your guess has been noted.

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AmareloTiago

Sicilian for Italian speakers.

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AnnaGuaGua

YES. Or just Sicilian in general

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AmareloTiago

My other guesses were Occitan and Friulian but I guessed Sicilian was the most likely.

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AnnaGuaGua

lol ive never even heard of those languages.....but my family is Italian from Sicily so I pretty much support anyone else that suggests it.

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

So would you like to guess Sicilian, then?

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AmareloTiago

Yes, I would like my official guess to be Sicilian, please.

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

OK, noted! :-)

March 1, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WildSage

That would really motivate me to do better on my Italian.

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HornBori

Cherokee. It's unexpected and far reaching.

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

OK! They did have those plans for Native American languages before... (Search for another mention of Cherokee in this thread if you want to know more. You are the first one to guess it, though!)

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jasperroest

West Frisian

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

That's certainly the first guess of that language! :-)

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jasperroest

Haha yeah I wanted to guess something that has not been guessed yet! ;) And I have some Frisian roots myself. The language is spoken in the north-west of the Netherlands (in the province of Friesland, or Frisia). Frisian is a bit closer to English than Dutch is.

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Inderdaad! Nothing wrong with a little awareness raising. ;-)

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AxelPutra

Since duo is kinda Eurocentric, I guess Maltese will do ;)

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/AmareloTiago

I hope so! Maltese is in my personal top 3 courses I hope they add!

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

OK, noted! :-)

March 3, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PERCE_NEIGE

I don't think it's Eurocentric anymore, hey Indonesian, Japonese, Swahili...

An educated guess: Finnish

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

OK, you're the third user guessing Finnish!.

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/knudvaneeden

I guess I know what to choose ;-) without going into the details of why.

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

As much as I hope you're right (and I really, REALLY do -- it's been 3+ years since I sent my application to work on that course!), using inside information is not allowed in this game... :-)

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LeviPolasak

I don't think they remember you applied from 3 years ago. I would resend it :(

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

I would assume they'd keep whatever applications they have... Especially since they are well aware of the interest in Finnish -- they do get asked about it regularly, both when they make appearances here and elsewhere (such as when Luis has been on Reddit).

I'd assume they would dig out the applications they do have whenever they consider some language, and see if those users are still active. I'm active and my profile states I've applied. Although I am getting a little disillusioned, and not only because it's been such a long time.

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/widle

I can see what the application list looks like to course creators (when the course is already in the incubator) and even very old ones are still there. You just need to scroll through all the single-sentence ones and clumsy translations and others.

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/knudvaneeden

No Duolingo inside information ;-) I was actually assuming that you knew the answer already, but that seems thus not the case. Then my answer being correct is also very much less probable.

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Oh no, unfortunately we're still waiting... :-S But hey, it might still happen!

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/knudvaneeden

Cross the fingers.

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/tydalamb

Tatar. I met a guy who spoke Tatar online a few days ago, so I'm guessing that.

March 1, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

That would be cool! Finland has had a (very small) Tatar speaking minority for 100+ years, but I've never come across the language being used.

March 1, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/tydalamb

You counted it, right?

March 1, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Yup! You're on the list... :-)

(I count all the ones I reply to, unless I specifically state in my reply that something is against the rules. I've taken to ignoring most of the ones against the rules, though. The rules are already stated above...)

March 3, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/tydalamb

Ok :D

March 3, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PolMicheal

Ojibwa!

March 1, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Wow, that'd be interesting!

March 3, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Lars200

My guess is Uzbek (because I dont want to choose the same as others, but honestly I think Finnish and Serbo-Croatian are more likely).

And I know it's against the rules, but I really hope for a course teaching Arabic.

March 2, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Hoping is never against any rules! ;-)

Uzbek has been noted as your official guess.

March 3, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HUMANCALCULATOR

have some lingots and I think Slovak

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

OK -- you're the second one guessing Slovak.

Edit: And thanks for he lingots, although I have plenty from before... :-p

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/.harlequinsmile.

not the only one

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Borbotrincess

Farsi. (Please let it be Farsi...)

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Wow, Farsi is proving really popular here! :-)

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Borbotrincess

Glad to hear! Yay!!!

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jinagaa

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jimnicholson

There is already an English for Thai speakers. So Thai is against the rules. Just sayin'

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sebi1909

i hope croatian

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Sure! It's been pretty popular in these threads, if I remember correctly.

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/1045343860

My guess, too

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

OK! You're the fourth user guessing Croatian.

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Irusejka

Cebuano/Bisaya!!!

Tagalog is already in the incubator, and I will start the course after it is finished, but I really hope that other languages from the Philippines will be added!

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

OK, sorry, I seem to have been too hasty in my comment above. So Cebuano/Bisaya is your official guess!

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/xaghtaersis

February 27, 2017

I will go with Persian/Farsi.

Still want Duolingo to come out with an Arabic course for English speakers, but I can't really guess that since there are four that teach from Arabic (and a fifth one in the workings).

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

OK! :-)

February 28, 2017

Scottish Gaelic. :-)

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

OK! :-)

Runa Simi aka Quechua, Qhichua or kichwa.

March 2, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Yup, this has even been promised at some point by Luis, I think...

March 3, 2017

Quechua for spanish speakers :)

OK, your guess has been noted! :-)

I don't know why duolingo does not focus on languages with more native speakers? English for Persian speakers & Persian for English speakers

February 27, 2017

I'm gonna go with... Bulgerian!!

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

OK, you are the second user making this guess! :-)

February 28, 2017

Bengali. :)

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/LeviPolasak

Probably English for Marathi or some other Indian language :/

I hope it's Hawaiian or Navajo though

February 27, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NeonMoogle

Even though it has already been said, I'll go with Croatian.

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Sure! :-)

Oromo

I figure with Swahili in beta, we might be due for another African language. This is one that the Peace Corps might want (from browsing their web site and then Wikipedia).

[This is a repeat entry from your last poll]

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

OK, cool! I like a well researched guess. :-)

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JimLeonard0

i will guess Bulgarian

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

OK! :-)

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/cswrawr

Igbo, because I've not seen anyone else guess it :)

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Sure! :-) You are indeed the first one.

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HexManiacSarina

Thalassian, the high elf and blood elf language in the Warcraft universe.

...No but really my guess is Cantonese.

February 28, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/melodicanon

Quenya I see Klingon and High Valyrian, but I don't have interest in either one of them.

March 1, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

I've noted Quenya as your guess. :-) As we've seen, Duolingo can make surprising choices sometimes... And hey, if we can't have Finnish, let's at least have something inspired by it! :-p

March 1, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/IanMendes

Javanese

March 1, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Cool, and not at all unlikely, methinks!

March 1, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Pilgrim1712

I am hoping for Slovenian. I have seen many requests for this language.

March 1, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

OK, cool! :-)

March 3, 2017

Latin. It probably won't happen but I'm going to guess anyway.

March 1, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Well, it sure would be popular! This is already the fourth guess for Latin.

March 3, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MrsWessel

I would hope for arabic. Otherwise, for fun, how about Niedersachsisch or Pashtun?

March 1, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

How about one guess within the rules of the game? ;-)

March 3, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MrsWessel

Sorry about that, Arabic (and never mind the thing I said 'for fun')

April 6, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

But Arabic is not a valid guess, because there are already (several) courses in the Incubator involving Arabic.

April 6, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KokoBlossom

I know I'm not the first to guess it but... Latin! :D

March 2, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

OK! :-)

March 3, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/NattKullav1

I pretty sure nobody mentions it before.
Zhuang

March 2, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Yup, you're absolutely right! :-)

March 3, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/History_GeekGirl

I usually guess Cherokee--mostly wishful thinking!--but since someone else already has this round, I will guess Navajo.

March 3, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

OK, I've put you down for Navajo then. :-)
