EDIT1: Ok , I already know that this language call pigiarniq, but what about grammar?
EDIT2: This language call Inuktitut...Can I search somewhere something about it? I only found this website :http://nac.nu.ca/publications_for_sale#3 There are some textbooks and audio cassettes there, but I would like better something free from internet...
thank you, but the second link don't work. Could you say me at least something about Inuktitut?
EDIT1: I think the second link is http://www.tusaalanga.ca
EDIT2: OK, I know something about grammar, now Are big differences in Nunavut dialects?
I try to write a basic Inuktitut grammar course:
The word and sentence : root + affix , examples:
aullaq= to leave , aullaqtunga = I leave. It means aullaq- is the root and -tunga is the affix.
I = -tunga
You = -tutit
He, She, It = tuq
We = ?
You = ?
They = -tut
What does " aullaqtut " mean? == they leave

EDIT1: could you recommend me any other e-textbook? The tusaalanga inuktitut is good, but it is difficult. For example in first lesson in vocabulary is the sentence : I would like water(imirumajunga), but in grammar is nothing about it.... I would like better a clasical textbook instead.
EDIT2: I'm reading in 1st lesson that "aullaq" means "to leave" and in 3th lesson the verb to leave is calling "ani" ?! Why?
i can help you for Inuktitut or other Inuit dialects (kalaallisut, inupiaq, etc) if u want
Singular : puv -ak
Dual : puv -vak
Plural : puv -ait
Is there any regulator or are there always the affixes diffrent ?
That's all, thanks for reply. And don't you want to record your voice with pronounce of the vocables and the short text from first lesson, too? because I'm not sure with the pronounce of the vocables... We could create a small textbook of Inuit language..
