That's indeed the problem with Belgium. It's a land with 3 official languages : Dutch, French and German.

Another case like this ? Switzerland ! 4 official languages : German, French, Italian and "Romanche" .

Can you for example guess my first language ? Question

TIP : the answer is on my site ! Tongue

Necron, we use some interesting way of vocal communication. One could call it a language, when you're not really into it, it might sound as primitive roaring.

This excerpt is very interesting about language :

"The Chamorro language is related to the languages of the Philippines and northeastern Indonesia. The language has changed considerably, however, during the thousands of years of relative isolation. Chamorro was not a written language . It was, and largely remains, an oral language. It did not become a written language until foreigners began attempting to write down the words they heard the Chamorros use. The Spanish, who were here for 400 years, left a noticeable influence on the original language. The Spaniards brought with them technology, food stuffs and textiles, all which the Chamorro language did not have words for. These words had to be assumed by the Chamorro people. The German administration, here for only 15 years, did not have a marked effect on the language. The Japanese who were here twice as long as the Germans, had only a minimal effect on the language. The Japanese influence on the eating habits was much greater. Seafoods of all types, including Sushi and Sashimi is a favorite among locals and tourists. Today many Chamorros speak some Japanese to communicate with the tourists. "
