    I'll give 10 points for that.

    The answer I'm looking for is not along those lines though.

    I think Hephaestus's "Salad in" guess deserves points too.

    True! It might even be better than your answer. :P

    At the start I wanted to avoid giving bonuses to avoid bias to one forum or the other, but I guess I've relaxed a bit as we've gone along.

    Someone on the other forum guessed this as well, but after you.

    I've no idea what language this is, but maybe it's low hanging fruit so I'll give it a stab:
    Spoiler: hidden guess
    The use of ' in can't and speak'a.


    Spoiler: Guess 2
    Alternatively, the can't is OK cuz it's not a function.. but speak'a is part of a function name and fubarred.

    Regarding ⰍⰂ, the Arab salad one, CatGoddess on INTPf gave a good answer to this (but not the one I'm looking for): Qaboos bin Said al Said. Salad in Arabic translates to "Sulta", which has the double meaning of power/rule/influence. There is only one Sultan left in the Arabic world, and it's Said, who rules Oman. I also awarded 10 points but now I'm looking for the exact answer on that question.

    But Saladin was not an Arab but a Kurd. </pedantry>
