In 1966, linguists found a language spoken by three people in the Hamaijan Rural District, in Iran. Their notes have been lost for a while, they have been rediscovered and the language, called Hadandi is a descendent of Elamite.

/b t d t͡ʃ d͡ʒ k g/ <b t d č j k g>
/m n/ <m n>
/f v s z ʃ ʒ x ɣ/ <f v š ž h gh>
/r l/ <r l>
/j/ <y>

/i a u e o/ <i a u e o>

Nouns do not decline for case, but take the plural suffix -(a/i)f. A genitive case can be found, -n for singular nouns ending in vowels, and -i, for plural nouns, and nouns ending in consonants.

Many children make up, or begin to make up, imaginary languages. I have been at it since I could write.
