        German, a modern language, and Latin, the most studied and used classical language are esoteric?

      Some people would say Hebrew.

      The Voynich manuscript is perpetually stated to be an unknown language. But it’s just abbreviated latin. And was just a boot leg copy of "Trotula" a woman’s health guide.
      It’s kinda like what happened with Amelia Earhart, we know what happened to her. But the mystery was too good to let go.

      That alphabet chart baffles me. You’re telling me Ancient Sumerian had a letter for every letter in the English alphabet, but none translating to Hebrew or Nordic sounds?

      You’re telling me they had a “j” in their alphabet, a letter that wasn’t even developed until the early modern periods of human history?

        That chart’s bullshit, Cuneiform had only 16 consonants and 4 vowels.

          Interesting. May I ask for a depiction of the original, or a trustworthy source?

      definition of esoteric: Intended for or likely to be understood by only a small number of people with a specialized knowledge or interest, or an enlightened inner circle.

      not Hebrew not latin not egyptian and definitely not german

        Hebrew fully fits that bill, it was a long dead language only spoken by clergymen and antiquarians until the state of Israel was invented in the 1940s. Likewise ancient Egyptian was a completely lost language until Egyptologists cracked it in the 19th century, even Coptic is a dead language only used for liturgy.

            It is known and spoken by a small number of people with specialised knowledge and interest in the topic. Hebrew was spoken exclusively by specialists in religion and philology until it was made the official language of Israel 70 years ago. Ancient Egyptian is only spoken by a handful of hardcore Egyptologists worldwide.

            Common Celtic is a reconstructed language made up by Linguists as a guess as to what the first Celtic language could have been, if it’s an esoteric language then so is Klingon.

      >most esoteric language

      The one I’m writing that’s not complete! Hahah or every other individual author that’s ever penned a secret code, or wrote a fictional story with garbledescrote for talk.

      Oh man, “most esoteric”.

      I dunno man how about the language of Tolkein’s Ainur. Or That one island of tribals that still exists because they kill everyone who comes on the island. Or a nearly-lost dialect of the Australian aboriginals.

        you have a conlang? interesting…
        the thing about his conlang is it was never spoken by any people, i feel it wouldnt have any power in it. and many indigenous languages are to basic in my opinion, but would be esoteric.

      The underlying syllable structure of Eastern/Central Arrernte is argued to be VC(C), with obligatory codas and no onsets. It is possible that there is a pre-coding of this pattern using one of its four constituent syllables (K.P.), but this is most likely to be just coincidence, or an artifact of my own idiocy. If this is the case, I would suggest that one try "cow" instead of "bung", as both are closer to the same orthographic pronunciation:
      c/r/U/T=R C/u/u/P=T U/a

      Enochian? John Dee claimed it was an ‘angelic’ language, but it’s likely that Dee invented it whole cloth.
