For the record, many Hawaiian speakers do not even have [t] before front vowels. Also you're using /phoneme brackets/ when you should be using [phonetic brackets].

m̓ałʔaaʔamaʔaała in Nuu-Cha-Nulth. According to Advanced Language Construction, 'it's always cold on the rocks'. The same vowel repeating over and over, two times lengthened.

It's not that unusual to find words with only /a/ considering it is the most common vowel in the world.

Slowly becoming convinced? Isn't it, like, immediately obvious after reading a couple of their posts?

Well, it's a toss-up between being a troll and suffering from an acute case of preteenitis.

Quite. He may even not be aware of his trollishness, which kinda disqualifies him from being a troll, does it not?

I was wondering if he had Asperger's or something, similarly to how Eddy had all the effects of a troll but was able to point to having a mental syndrome.

Civil War Bugle is right. I have ADHD and autism. Not to mention kitchensinklangfanNo.1. So you may be right that I have the effects of a troll like Eddy, but I am not.

I can't remember how to say it in Moroccan Arabic, but "She turns the couscous steamer just like her mom" ~~ "Chip off the old block" is one of my favoriter expressions from Morocco

Swahili lililililia means "it cried for it", as long as both "it"s are class 5.

Swahili:

Hivyo ndivyo ilivyo, sivyo?

"That's the way it is, isn't it?"

(Class 8 is frequently used for adverbial meanings and class 9 is a default inanimate class.)
