About Whale Speech A language based on the sounds made by whales!! Is that not hecka cool?! It's still in the early stages of development, but it's tonal, has clicks, and a nasal M vowel!

In the late 90's, a whale named NOC attempted to mimic human speech. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4Uy_QOQfbs
This language is simply my attempt to do the reverse! :D

I'm going to do a full overhaul of this language, including it's name. I plan on adding an e sound, and making the vowel system more streamlined ( :P ) by using tones only for grammatical porpoises. This will make word building much easier, and the syllabic consonant M easier for humans to produce, as this is the tongue that whales communicate with humans with in my mythos. This is gonna be a lot of fun! WHEEEOOO!!
