A Humdinger of a Language

Sorry for the tone-deaf
  [vote for,

This is a language that communicates thoughts by humming pitches to correspond with word syllables, or perhaps, whole concepts. Pitch inflection, length, and relative volume could refine meaning as well, like some Asian tonal languages.

That way we don't have to try and speak through masks or worry about spreading COVID while talking.
