Lenakel is spoken in the western coast of Tanna Island in Vanuatu[https://www.ethnologue.com/language/TNLip_login_no_cache=%04%5D%A4I%A0-%B8%E0&cache].

In no particular order, I found these languages interesting:

  • Lenakel
  • Purepecha
  • Jeju

Purépecha

Information

ISO 639-3: tsz Purépecha is spoken in the highlands of Michoacán, Mexico[1]. There are approximately 55,000 speakers of the language in all countries [2]. It's considered a language isolate since it doesn't seem to be related to any other known languages [3]. Purépecha is considered both an agglutinative language and polysynthetic as well [4]. Speakers of the language may also know Spanish as Mexican government has encouraged Speakers of indigenous languages to abandon their languages in favor of Spanish; this is causing the status of the language to become more endangered [5]. It wasn't until 2003 the Congress of the Union of Mexico approved the General Law of Linguistic Rights of the Indigenous Peoples which protected the language as a "national language" [6]. The official alphabet is the P’URHEPECHA JIMBO KARARAKUECHA (Purépecha Alphabet) [7].
