This is a version with added "karaoke" subtitles of "Lord Smoke and the Merchant" by William S. Annis, who is the sole right holder, who chose the creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0/ license for this video. For more information about the original, see the "a little conanthropology (conthropology?)" discussion on the CONLANG mailing list: listserv.brown.edu/archives/cgi-bin/wa?A2=ind1402c&L=conlang&F=&S=&P=165528. From lingweenie.org/conlang/ and lingweenie.org/conlang/kahtsaai.pdf . the constructed language of the story seems to be Kahtsaai

About the CC (closed captions) captions/subtitles that can be activated by clicking the CC button in the player's navigation bar: on vimeo, their languages have to be selected from a set list. So I chose:
- English for the English translation
- Kalaalisut for the original captions (because it was the option closest to Kahtsaai)
- Português for the phonetic transcription (because the language code is PT)
- Southern Soto for the structural translation (for no good reason, really)
All these CC captions/subtitles can be improved from the subtitling subpages of amara.org/videos/E5ouUEJZEE1S/info/lord-smoke-and-the-merchant-by-william-s-annis/ . Same issue of a set language list to select from there too, but at least Amara also offers some not-used "meta" languages So the subpages are:
- Metadata: Geo for original captions
- English for the English subtitles
- Metadata: Twitter for the phonetic transcript
- Metadata: Wikipedia for the structural translation.
