Well, I should have had my reference at the ready, for when to actually remember the word of the culture all I got was an E and an A having a bong hit in a trailer house. When queried the two red-faced remains of the memory giggled "Elam".. I tried to find a solid reference, but I came up slightly unconvincing.

Here is my only proof:

Khuzi was the unofficial language of the royalty of Persia, "Khuz" being the corrupted name for Elam.

I always thought the Mamluks were an interesting one..
