Hmm - the was the Ethnologue, but there isn't an Ajuk entry in it -
though I am working on one. Thing is, I keep changing whats in it
already before I get a chance to finish it - and it's only a few
sentances. Pretty sad, I know.
Anyways, Ajuk is spoken by the Ajukkians (that's their English name - in
Ajuk it's "Ajuki Omas"), of which there are around 100,000, all living
on Ajuki Sal, an island about 1/3 the size of Iceland (and of similar
terrain) in the north Pacific a bit south of Iceland. They actually
originally lived on Iceland, but fled when the Vikings got there around
850AD. Anyways, they're humans and all, and the language is going strong
on Ajuki Sal to date.
