Our doubts are traitors, and makes us lose the good we might oft win, by fearing to attempt. ~William Shakespeare

Dear 100 Hour Board,

Are there languages in the world that don't have labial consonants, or at least that don't have labial plosives (/b/, /p/)? I really just don't like these consonants, and I'm thinking this is the criterion by which I should choose the next language I learn.

A: Dear A. A. Melyngoch,

Two words for you my friend: sign language.
