The New York Times has a fascinating ten-question quiz that requires one to guess which of a pair of names in the Huambisa language of Peru is the name of a bird (the other name is always the name of a fish). You can listen to the names, which helps a great deal. I was pleasantly surprised to get nine out of ten correct. Can you do any better?
