The Librarian ISNT Dutch! for crying out LOUD!
Matrim: Your command of the English language is amazing if it isn't your mother tongue. (Hell of alot better than some of this lot who claim to be English I can tell you) Don't believe a word they say! (or repeat it to your friends.... you will just look silly if you go around telling people the Librarian is Dutch! *whaps Sjoerd*
Ook is the sound orangutans make sort of.
And yes you CAN make a whole language out of one sound.
My little girl didn't have any language until she was 7 or 8, but she was "vocal". The only sound she made was "Eeeee" and we used to have full conversations with her right up until she was able to do a tiny bit of Macaton. (like a sign language but more graphic for tiny ones... pretend you are eating a sandwich = I am hungry)
Strangley this always made reading the Librarian in DW a pushover. My oldest daughter (now 23) is silly. She still talks in Ook! with me while shopping; well not all the time. She goes to say "Oooooo isn't that nice" but then launches into "Oooooooooo.... -K!" and so it begins?
What is your first language by the way?
