Is Nehushtan right?
Dette er nemlig Formelen, som beskriver Selvets Tilstand, naar Fortvivlelsen ganske er udryddet: i at forholde sig til sig selv, og i at ville være sig selv grunder Selvet gjennemsigtigt i den Magt, som satte det. (This is namely the formula, that describes the condition of the self, when despair is completely eradicated: by relating itself to itself, and by willing to be itself, the self is grounded transparently in the power which constituted it) (Søren Kierkegaard, The sickness unto death)

The guy who posed the riddle hasn't logged on since last year. I think it's safe for another person to pose a new one.

Okay, then.

Well, nobody has been playing for two years, so I assume it's safe for me to post a new one...

The orthography reminds me of Somali, but the morphology isn't right for that. But maybe a related language like Afar?

Nope. Actually, you're looking at the wrong side of the African continent. Try West instead.

It's not Fula, but it belongs to the Niger-Congo family.

Sorry for "necroposting", but this topic is still on the first page and I don't want to create a new topic.

Here's the text:
