    You still need to add "Fremen" to the language list. :D

    That's just a future dialect of Arabic, too. :P

    (We don't really have enough examples of it, do we, to even get a feel for what it's like? FH gives us enough Fremen Arabic to get an idea of what kind of changes have occurred in it—not many/not enough for the amount of time that has passed, so we pretty much have to assume something like the Encyclopedia explanation, that at some point the wild Fremen RMs had exerted some restorative effect on the language of the community based on their knowledge from Other Memory. The BT don't have OM, so presumably their Arabic would be a very different critter, all things being equal.)

    Odrade looked ahead at Waff's back. Plodding. It appeared to come naturally to
    him. She recalled that he called Sheeana "Alyama." Another confirming
    linguistic insight into Waff's Great Belief. It meant "Blessed One." The
    Tleilaxu had kept an ancient language not only alive but unchanged.

    You can forward me anything. If you have something that is questionable, just make it a link instead of an image.
