Do you know of any non-Afroasiatic African languages/varieties that aren't tonal or pitch accent languages (besides Swahili)?

That pretty much sums it up. Let me know if I need to make the question more clear. It was hard to make the question both succinct and understandable.

In my basic linguistic training, I learned that many American Native languages are, and even some European ones.

Looking it up on Wikipedia in German (there doesn't´t seem to be an English site), you can find following, and it´s not too hard to get the meaning:

Taking out the non-Asian/African tonal languages, we get:

"Mayathan, die Maya-Sprache von Yucatán, im Gegensatz zu anderen Maya-Sprachen, viele der indigenen Sprachen Amerikas, zum Beispiel die Apache-Sprachen, einige indogermanische Sprachen, zum Beispiel Panjabi, Altgriechisch in seiner Originalaussprache, Litauisch, Norwegisch, Schwedisch und einige süddänische Dialekte[1], die südslawischen Sprachen Bosnisch, Kroatisch, Serbisch und Slowenisch, Limburgisch und die ripuarischen Mundarten des Deutschen."

Maybe Google Translator will help you put it in English :o)

Greetings, Jass
