Thanks. Well it's really Latin with a number of strategic letter
replacements using Word, and an effort to see how Fr. Daniel Boucher's
adapted Latin for Trolls would sound. (We're in the realm of fiction now.)
It was the missionary's plan to give these misunderstood creatures a
decent-sounding languager rather than a crude-sounding collection of grunts,
or something like Klingon. He really wanted to "civilize" the
neo-Neanderthals and integrate them into the human population -- an
endeavour highly unlikely to be successful, but Father Danny was a strange
breed of idealist. But at least they had a language they could work with.

The Trolls never got the hang of playing Father Boucher's Cajun accordion
however (it was destroyed the second day he arrived in Antarctica), and
resorted to beating on things to make a sort of music, more in the style of
Spike Jones....
