I've been looking at Essentialist Explantations again, and was wondering if
anybody could come up with one for Khangažyagon. Here's a quick sample,
with pronunciation, gloss, and translation.

samang ya leshnam išuzhang ya karrkakar
[s&m&N j& leSn&m, iDu:Z&N j& ka:rk&ka:4]
go.1p.pt 1p east.to see.1p.pt 1p raven.pl
I went to the east, I saw the ravens
beb enbanar subanar u elldahingar yir beb oltokdahingar yir
[beb enb&na:4 su:b&na:4 u: el:d&hiNa:4 ji4 beb oltokd&hiNa:4 ji4]
and thing.this.pl all.this.pl "such that" new.be.3p.pt.pl 3p.pl and
busy.be.3p.pt.pl 3p.pl
And all those things that were new and busy.
samang ya hashnam, išuzhang ya issulir
[s&m&N j& h&Sn&m, iDu:Z&N j& is:uli:4]
go.1p.pt 1p west.to see.1p.pt 1p egret.pl
I went to the west, I saw the egrets
beb enbanar subanar u futodahingar yir beb žomadahingar yir
[beb enb&na:4 su:b&na:4 u: fu:tod&hiNa:4 ji4 beb To:m&d&hiNa:4 ji4]
and thing.this.pl all.this.pl "such that" old.be.3p.pt.pl 3p.pl and
calm.be.3p.pt.pl 3p.pl
And all those things that were old and calm.

The language has been described as sounding like Welsh. One Welsh speaker I
know denies this.
