I love finding out things like this about other languages:
A village in the northern Malay Peninsula … Comprising just 280 people, the villagers speak an Aslian language newly named Jedek …
The community has almost no interpersonal violence, they actively encourage their children not to compete, and there are no courts or laws, the researchers said.
There are also no strict gender divisions or professions, with everyone learning a gamut of skills required for the hunter-gatherer community.
All these characteristics are reflected in the language, with no words for professions or laws or ownership. Instead, there is a rich vocabulary to describe exchange and sharing.
A previously unknown language has just been discovered in Southeast Asia
