I've had these saved up for a year or two, since I participated in a similar game elsewhere. Time to dust them off and see if y'all can guess which language is named by each rebus! Some are probably stupid easy, but at least some others probably aren't.

It would be nice of you to hide your answers, so that others can read the thread without fearing they will be spoiled.

And finally, to make a baker's dozen, there's one more... one which I myself can neither remember nor figure out the answer to. Feel free to have a go! (If you guess correctly I will probably be able to tell that it's correct.)

Yaali: you guessed correctly for #5 (the first one), and for all of 7 - 12.



I admit, #6 is rather a stretch, and if nobody gets it I will have nobody to blame but myself.

quoting Travis B.:
2. Plains Cree

Incorrect, I'm afraid. You may be over-thinking it - #2 is, in principle at least, the simplest of them.

The logic of #6, for which I apologize:
There are four clips of Beowulf. Which is written in Old English, or OE. Four OEs —> Faroese.
