I was also going to do Sanskrit, but couldn't find my notes... Thanks to taschenrechner for the Russian...

Quenya, and Sindarin were interesting, too, but pronouns aren't used; instead, the languages use affixes to the verbs...

Please /msg either me or a Content Editor if you add to this node so that your w/u can be neatly assimilated.
