      Came here to advertise? Read first   12/05/2016

      Over the last few months, there's been a huge increase of members coming here just to advertise their own products, services, or whatever.
      This is fine, but the "General Discussions" section is not the right place. If you came here to advertise anything you made or provide yourself, do this here.
      If you came here to advertise anything you love to use, do it here. Thank you for your understanding. And remember: anything we consider spam is subject to the ban hammer. Any smash is available free of charge.

  1. This is almost certainly a Plains Native American language from the Siouan family, which includes Lakota. I'm basing this off a few distinguishing features: - it's tonal - it uses nasal vowels (like in "huh?", sort of) - there are lateral fricatives (think "L" + "SH") - the syllable structure is mostly CV (consontant + vowel) [this is a gross oversimplification, but you can contrast that with languages like English that often have more consonant-heavy syllables like the classic example of "strengths", which is CCCVCCC when you analyze the phonemes (sound components)]
