Two down and twenty-three to go!

English does not count, as it is my native language and I did not have to go out of my way to learn how to say the phrase in it.

- French : "Ne me touchez-pas! Mes cheveux sont toxique!"
- ASL (American Sign Language): You'll just have to trust me on this one for now, or ask coyote_mama who taught it to me. I'll try to post a video later when I can.

So, that is two. It's a start!

Re: Latvian
'Nepieskaries' is sing., 'nepieskarieties' is both pl. and a polite way of addressing someone.

Thank you!
Is the flat-line-topped ī pronounced a particular way?

Okay, here is some very rough guidance how to say the sentence in Finnish...
As examples I've used English words and wnb-words, and a little bit of French, since you're studying it. Now just pronounce the examples as you would in English/French. Hope it helps! :)

Don't touch me! (English)
Älä koske minuun! (Finnish)
À la cause que me noon (how to pronounce it)
[Both A's with dots are pronounced as the 'A' in the word 'cAt', for example]

My hair is poisonous! (English)
Hiukseni ovat myrkylliset! (Finnish)
Hugh xen-ee Oh what mew-r-kew Liz said (how to pronounce it)
[Finnish has the same kind of 'rolling r' as in Spanish]

Russian
"Не трогайте меня! Мои волосы ядовиты." - I think it's more or less correct, but I'm not a native speaker of Russian.

Yay for Russian! How is that transliterated into the English alphabet?

Re: Russian
"Ne trogajte menja! Moi volosy jadovity." Letter 'j' should sound like a letter 'y' in 'yours'. 'Mo-i' is pronounced as two syllables, with stress on the second one, 'i'. Hard vowel 'ы' (y) is pronounced approximately like 'i' as in 'bit', but with the tongue further back in the throat. It's really difficult to explain! :)
