Tim's Takamatsu (the third one) is a great resource! I already had his verb page in my Favorites folder, and I'd advise anyone going there to check it out too.
Noranaya died again. Resurrection pending.

Note: The exception is ii (good). It is always used as it is and never conjugated.


That's quite untrue. It's slightly (only slightly!) irregular, but it does indeed conjugate.

Also linked at Omniglot, but it's the most detailed description of the writing system I have seen so far.

Was posted on CONLANG-L recently, might be useful. It's about the languages of Papua New Guinea.

http://scripts.sil.org/cms/scripts/page ... 0_graphite
SIL is making efforts to include its Graphite system into OpenOffice. Graphite makes it possible to render more complex scripts such as Devanāgarī and the like on the computer as they are supposed to look like, i.e. with letter reordering and splitting and other nice things. They take Burmese as an example. I'm looking forward to the final release so that I can finally make a Tahano Nuhikamu font that actually works and that can be used with OOo!

Very good resourse for basic phonology. Gives contrasting sound files of many unusual phonemes including implosive, ejective and laryngealized sounds, clicks, aspiration, voicing, and points of articulation - all from original language sources.
