Last month’s language: Korean.

Now see if you can discover this month’s language, without using the Internet!

Even though it is the native language of only 40% of the population of this small country of 12 million souls, it is spoken by 94% of them.  One of its most notable characteristics is that it features a pronoun conjugation instead of a verbal conjugation, and lacks conventional adjectives, which are treated as (stative)verbs.  It is also worth pointing out that its conjugation stresses aspect, not tenses.

There is reportedly a most remarkable correlation, a perfect concordance between the third person singular of the Egyptian and this language’s suffix pronoun, both masculine and feminine: Ancient Egyptian .f, .s, this language .ef, .es; for the third person plural, it is closer to Pharaonic Egyptian than Coptic itself: Ancient Egyptian sn, Coptic ou, this language, seen. In more recent history, it is credited with the etymology of such American idioms as: honky tonk; okay; jazz to name a few.

One can hear it in a couple of songs by Peter Gabriel, or in the music of a movie like “The Thomas Crown Affair.”
