Human in 20 different languages

It is interesting how some of these languages call human (as a member of Human race) after Adam (or in one case literally son of Adam) which was a first man who ever walked this earth according to the Old Testament. And again, since it is one of the oldest words you can spot some similarities between the languages.
Advice: this time I have chosen not one, but two languages used by smaller native groups which both could be found in north america.

Interesting quiz. One can recognize the different language families in some of the words.

However, the German translation is incorrect. The word menschlich is used as an adjective (e.g. human emotions). "Human" as a noun is just Mensch.

Oh, and the Burmese letters are not shown properly. At least on my browser (Firefox v. 77.0.1).

Thank you for your reivew. I fixed the german version, as well as other germanic versions. However, I could not find any problem with Burmese letters. Unfortunately I cannot speak burmese, so I am not sure how to write it correctly I just trusted all the the dictionaries I used to make this quiz.

Thank you again MayaB and have a nice day!

I would recommend to allow Azeri and Slovene as type-ins.

I can see the Burmese just fine. Maybe MayaB doesn't have the right font installed?

Some computers don't display certain scripts (might be a rendering issue). Burmese is a common one not to show but more computers seem to show it just fine nowadays.
