Metalinguist [General]

You have an intuitive understanding of the basics of communication.

Benefit

If you do not share a language with another person/creature, you may, over the course of a minute, convey an abstract thought, idea or question that you could otherwise express with a full round of speech. If the other party also takes the time to communicate at the same pace, you can understand in return. Of course, there is always some risk of mistranslation.

Special

You can only communicate with creatures that speak some language. A purely telepathic creature, or one communicating through scents but not words, is unintelligible to you.

Notes

This feat incorporates the Pidgin feat from earlier versions of the Netbook of Feats.
