It's not McDonald's, although that's a close second.

I'll repost the question for the sake of clarity, as there have been multiple comments in between :D

Question #26: What is the largest fast food restaurant chain by number of locations?

Since I have no idea whatsoever I have 2 guesses and I'll just randomly go with KFC. I bet it will be the other guess :lol:

If I recall correctly it's Subway and it's one of the major reason they're failing in Europe.

EDIT: It seems again that there are no answers... :( I'll make the question a bit easier by having you only mention the writer's name OR nationality. Hope this will help, I'd like to do at least a single bonus question properly :winkgrin:

So, the edited question is as follows:

Bonus Question #2: Which writer is known for the "Moomin" series of books OR what nationality was she?

Well, technically Raymanian is just gibberish as opposed to an actual language, and Pig Latin is simply garbled English...

I could accept those, but I'm looking for actual constructed languages (conlangs) here. Sorry for not specifying that enough :oops2:

Nope, they are both natural languages. I'm looking for artificially developed languages that can still be considered actual languages.

That's pretty close, but sign languages are actually naturally developed languages, and braille is a writing system, not a language in itself.

Hint: Multiple fiction writers have invented their own languages to use in their fictional world. In addition, people (linguists, mostly) have developed artificial languages to ease communication between people speaking different languages, or simply for experimentation.

That's right! Both of them are artificial languages indeed.

I hope this doesn't count as cheating because I had to look up the name in english, but the platypus is a venomous mammal.

Using a dictionary certainly isn't cheating in this case, since I trust that you knew the name beforehand. You're correct!
