bluepiano: Montenegrin. A bit of a cheat, really, because like Croatian, Bosnian, Serbian, and so on it's basically the language that used to be called 'Yugoslavian'.

bluepiano: Another slight cheat: The book is written in English, but it's a transcription of Pitseolak's spoken Inuktitut.

Dilara86: Chinese
Cynfelyn : Chinese has 1,200,000,000 native speakers. You have to add the number of native English speakers to the number of second language English speakers, PLUS those who speak English as a foreign language before you that sort of figure. By no stretch of the imagination can Chinese be called an uncommon language.

Cynfelyn : Chinese, uncommon? No. Mandarin alone has more native speakers than the next two commonest languages, Spanish and English, combined.
