Question 4

There are 17 languages that appear on the reverse side of any Indian currency note. If Assamese is the first language that appears on top, which language features at the bottom of the list? What is this order determined by? 

Question 5

The first time we heard this language was in December 2009. Created by linguist Paul Frommer, this language was designed to sound alien. Initially, the language had only around 1,000 words but Frommer has since expanded it to include over 2,600 words and detailed its grammar, making it a fully functional language. We will be able to hear this language again in December 2022. Which language is this and where will we hear it?

Take your guesses in the comments section below. Winners of this edition, along with the answers will be revealed next Sunday, so keep your eyes peeled!
