_______________________________________________________ Given how many people in the past have complained about the difficulty of its pronunciation (82 phonemes) and its extremely complex and alien morphology (e.g., 81 noun cases, verbs inflect for 22 morphological categories), I'm sure some would say Ithkuil meets Geoff's criteria. As for samples, the Ithkuil website is loaded with mp3 sound files of example sentences.
