"Your yahzick could be in this mesto."

I'm not sure what to use for "language".  The word 'yahzick' is "tongue"
(the body part).  Since Nadsat's an English relex, I think that's the best
candidate, and extending it to mean "tongue, a language", is okay.  However,
there's also 'govoreet', "to speak or talk"; 'skazat', "say"; and 'slovo',
"word" to choose from.

"Your language here."  :-)

I also tried to translate the phrase into Barsoomian or Lapine, but neither
language was developed enough for me to do so.
