Information: Mr James was rescued from an illegal nursing home in Indianapolis run by SCP-████-KO. No identification was available except for a name tag hanging on the bed.

Researcher Hariuchi:
— Nice to meet you. Shall we talk?

James:
— Mmph?!!!!??! Mmph?!!??!?! Hmm?!!!??!! Hm??!?!!!?

Researcher Hariuchi:
(Whispering into the radio) Is this even a real language? It doesn't have any consonants.

Dr Aktus:
(On the radio) That's why we called you. Do something.

James:
— Hmm?!!!?!!! Hmm?!!?!??? Mmph?!!????! Hmm?!!!?!?? Hm??!!!!!!

Researcher Hariuchi:
(To himself, on radio) Jesus fucking Christ. Okay, Mr James, I don't know what's wrong… You know what gestures are, right? (Nods his head slowly, than fast) Can you do this?

James:
(Nodding) Mmph?!!!!??! Mmph?!!??!?! Hmm?!!!??!! Hm??!????!

Researcher Hariuchi:
— That's better. Mr James, I ask you to answer yes or no with your head, do you understand?

James:
(Nodding) Mmph?!!!!??! Mmph?!!??!?! Hmm?!!!??!! Hm??!????!

Researcher Hariuchi:
— Mr James, you can just nod.

James:
(Shakes head vigorously) Hmm?!!?!!!? Mmph?!!?!!!! Hm??!????!

Researcher Hariuchi:
— Haaa… I understand. I'll not care what you do as long as you move your head. Now, James, I'll need to know more about your identity so that I could have a better clue as to what you are saying. Do you get me?

James:
(Nods head) Mmph?!!?!!!! Hmm?!!?!?!! Hm??!?!!!?

Researcher Hariuchi:
(Exhausted) Veeeeery well, Mr James. We've come a long way. We now know that you are a U.S. citizen, a resident near the hospital, came here after your retirement as seen in the chart, but not voluntarily, a sane person and have received formal education. Is that correct?

James:
(Nods head vigorously, almost crying.) Mmph?!?!!??! Mmph?!???!?! Mmph?!?????! Hm??!????!

Researcher Hariuchi:
— Now… Is there anything more to know from a yes or no question… Hmm…

James:
(Catching breath, exhausted.)

Researcher Hariuchi:
— Aagh…Huh? Mr James, you said you received a formal education, right?

James:
(Nodding) Mmph?!!!!??! Mmph?!!??!?! Hmm?!!!??!! Hm??!????!

Researcher Hariuchi:
— Do you speak English?

James:
(Nodding) Mmph?!!!!??! Mmph?!!??!?! Hmm?!!!??!! Hm??!????!

Researcher Hariuchi:
— ????

James:
(Blinking, struggling to get himself understood.)

Researcher Hariuchi:
— … (Unsure) …A?

James:
— Mmph?!?????!

Researcher Hariuchi:
(Pulls out phone, searches something.) …B?

James:
— Hmm?!????!?

Researcher Hariuchi:
— Question mark?

James:
— Hm??!!!!!!

Researcher Hariuchi:
— Exclamation mark?

James:
— Hm??!????!

Researcher Hariuchi:
(Screaming) WHY DOES IT HAVE TO BE BINARY?? IT'S NOT EVEN MORSE!!

James:
— Hmm?!!?!??? (Expression of happiness and relief.)

<Omitted>

Notes: James was found out to have worked as a computer programmer since the 60s. His tongue seemed fine but was actually fixed to his jaw, rendering him unable of normal speech.
