Lost geek creds

… ’cause I could only name three: Klingon, Cityspeak and Esperanto. But there is more, shame on me.

I also think the language of the Ewoks should be there, it’s probably got more air time than any of these. And what about wookie ? It did sound to me like the same “mrooaw !” all along, but Han Solo seems to understand it.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
