About (old) Xongan Xongan is the tonal click language that the native population of the islands of Zonk speaks. Zonk is an island just southwest of Australia. Nobody really knows where the people came from or what people group they fit into. The people often traded with China, their main commodity being carbonated soda water. The island is small and moutainous, being abut the size of Rhode Island and its highest point being ~6 000 feet tall. The island was run by natives, and then the Dutch, then the Spanish, and then the British. They won their Independence in a series of quick battles and raids in 1810. Th language went on a downhill slope, losing speakers because of natives losing their lands and being assimilated into the easier agricultural society of the new nation. The language was closest to going extinct in around 1940, when it hit only 1 000 speakers. It was then retaught to the natives, and hit around 17 000 speakers (the native population at the time.) It was the taught in schools as a primary class and today around 50 percent of the nation can speak the language.
