Prolagus commented on the word sxʷ�?št'qá
It's actually a right-to-left comic strip: a couple of gulls poops on an a and a t, then fly away over the seas. Finally they fall in love, but a snake eats them while they're mating.

"Vowel!" cried the referee and pointed to the spot.Dunno. I think we should add it to spelling bees and offer a free vowel to the winner. I'm just wondering if you need to be toothless to pronounce this kind of word? Perhaps toothlessness comes naturally when you have consumed a thousand portions of pi.

bilby - have you considered buying a vowel? I'm thinking that this kind of submission violates some kind of zoning permit or community aesthetics guideline. Or maybe these words contain secret cipher keys for generating the first 1000 digits of π.
The word is from Native American language Salish–Pend d’Oreille and means 'one whose job it is to take care of livestock'.See also the ghostly sxw�?št'qá.
