do you speak African?

I was trying to find something out about pygmy hippos today and came across this embarrassingly bad press release. A quote: "The Louisville Zoo’s female baby pygmy hippo heard her name for the first time—Isoke (ee SO keh), which is African for satisfying gift."

Actually, there's more than one language in Africa. (Liberia, for example, has this many.)
