Here's a few more to add: Northern Uatakassí is essentially Southern Uatakassí with no diphthongs and all the vowels turned to /i/. Southern Uatakassí is essentially Northern Uatakassí with no codas and a bunch of weird consonants. Vulgar Uatakassí is essentially Standard Uatakassí spoken by lazy foreigners. Conversely, Standard Uatakassí is essentially Vulgar Uatakassí spoken by snobs. Uatakassí is essentially Hawaiian spoken by Finns on crack.
