Oh, interesting question! Hmm...

Why don't we ask in the general discussion for (EDIT) Salajane, Antea, and dEhiN's opinion? Then we can decide that way whether to try making a comparative study thread. If they don't agree, we'll just use this thread for Aleut. :)

Interesting idea. Let's go with it. (Since you already asked. :P )

That reminds me, Vijay, I posted our first "assignment" in my TAC thread (because I wasn't sure if a study group would be formed or what not).

This is the website you mention in your TAC, right?

I dunno whether I'll be able to get everything done by Sunday since it's my first day off this week. :( Maybe Monday though? (You see, I'm also slowly translating a kind of light joke book from Turkish and going through Kurdish with voron... :lol: I'm also doing Tamil and Sumerian with dEhiN, but those don't count, because the Tamil thing is super-easy for me and I've already done this week's assignment for both languages. :P I'm also doing French with him, though...which shouldn't be too hard, but I'm just trying to see whether I can squeeze it all in, and especially whether I can do all that).

EDIT: I can imagine you and voron playing tug-of-war with me to the point of tearing me apart. :P
"No, he has to stay in Turkey, because Thanksgiving is coming soon, and that's when you eat turkey! Gobble gobble!"
"Voron, you moron, turkeys are American!"

I would totally win. :twisted:

At any rate, we can readjust the due date. To be honest, I'm not sure I can get it done in time either. :P
Let's leave the date for now, and if we can't get it done by Sunday, we'll extend it a bit. Sounds good to you?

EDIT: Actually, I probably should have made sure that you didn't want to go through the pronunciation section first (Lesson 0 on the website). So I'll ask now.

No worries.

I was facinated to see that <d> is pronounced [ð/θ] in Native Aleut words. :P

<D> also represents [θ] in a couple of the Latin script-based writing systems for Mapudungun. (I'm not sure [ð] exists in any variety of Mapudungun).
