It identified Mangani as Cebuano, which appears to be
a langauge spoken in the phillipines.
Also, I'm going to drop off the list. I've got too
much stuff going on with my other projects to pursue
the linguistical aspects of Mangani. It seems very
interesting (and very technical--more than what I can
pursue at the moment, but I think that's good for this
list) but I can't keep up with it at the moment.
It's been fun, though. Bye for now.
