Just listen to those consonant clusters!

I think I'm more interested in learning Lushootseed than CO Salish if it were to come down to either. I feel a lot closer to Lushootseed (for whatever reason) though I have waaay more resources with which to learn CO Salish.
I am really liking Mohawk though. I have the Kanehsatake site and Mohawk: A Teaching Grammar which are both good. Sadly the Teaching Grammar doesn't mark falling tones, though that's probably not too hard to get around. I might like to buy Kanyen'keha Tewatati soon.

I feel similar about Cayuga (and Oneida). Chances are really good I'll go with an Iroquoian language, as I've always been very interested in them. They're my first love when it comes to NAILs. It just is a shame there aren't better resources for Mohawk. I mean, there are a few, but nothing like the other two (aside from the Teaching Grammar).
EDIT: A screw it, I'm going with Cayuga. I remember telling Bingles a month or two ago that's what I would do, so that's what I'm going to do!

Mmm, ok maybe not all but I hear it being said from lots of people of different nations!

I've asked the admins to move the thread.
