In "Gods of Riverworld", Philip Jose Farmer has one character, Loga, shout out
"I tsab u!", which is translated as "Who are you?" This is identified as the
language of the "Ethicals" the aliens who have set up the riverworld system.
I haven't read any of the other Riverworld books, so I don't know if there's
any other vocab.
I am assuming it is a relex of English, and has the same WH-query pattern as
English. I could be wrong.
Does anyone have solid information on the Ethicals conlang?
