** The fishing boat example isn't due to the complexity of the language, but the fact that most speakers of Basic don't know how to make that soft (unaspirated) "p" sound. Presumably Basic, like English, usually has a puff of air accompany the "p" sound. This isn't part of the language but simply how it's spoken. The Chiss language, however, uses both as different phonemes.[[note]] As do some Earth languages, in fact.[[/note]] Car'das was so used to Basic that, try as he might, he couldn't make that soft "p" when the language called for it. Spanish speakers, from what I've been told, do the opposite; they don't make the puff of air that English-speakers do.
