Why nobody speaks Sentinelese: "All trespassers on the island have been killed"

Erwetyrtuykiuliu

From Wikipedia : "Since interactions with the Sentinelese have been extremely rare, brief, and generally avoided by the Sentinelese themselves, there has been no material, language samples or even word lists published on their language...."

And: "Since nobody outside the community can speak Sentinelese, and all trespassers on the island have been killed, the authorities cannot communicate with the islanders."

"Bernhard Glaeser wrote in 1995 that scientists hoped soon to learn Sentinelese."
