My understanding is that the "code-talkers" just translated the English messages into Navaho and talked normally to each other, relying on the obscurity and difficulty of Navaho to stymie the Japanese (or Germans?) who were listening in. Any obscure natlang or a priori conlang could work the same way; preferably some language about which nothing has been published in your enemy's language. -- Jim Henry
