Do NAIL languages include Central American Indigenous Languages, considering Central America is a part of North America?

I'm not 100% sure, but I figure they could be part of our domain here. Geographically speaking you're correct, so why not? :P

I suppose they wouldn't, considering Nahuatl has its own forum. :P

True. And Quechua has it's own forum (though that's a South American language). Though there are a lot more Central American languages then Spanish and Nahuatl!
Either way it doesn't matter to me. We have enough to worry about with the indigenous languages of America and Canada! 8-)

Generally Central and South American languages are not group with NA NDN languages.

I've been thinking we should make a NAIL based language game. Any suggestions?

Most certainly… ‹(“·—·)› a flash card game, that contains a large number of the nouns, such as river water, and so forth.

Another fun idea would be to have something like the bushmechanics, game :silly:.
I seriously lack creativity right now, I feel like something horrible must have happened, to me recently.
I’m not learning words so well…, and then… my creativity even for my age group has become abysmal.
then again maybe I always lacked creativity.

Well I made a NAIL knock-off of the Multilingual Word game.
If my Mohawk was any better I've thought of a NAIL multilingual 'Person Below Me' game . . .

So, anyone still studying Navajo or any other N.A. languages?
Figured I'm not doing my job if I don't check on things every so often. :whistle:

That's OK, this forum is partly what keeps me motivated. :D
I hope we'll get some more learners in the future. This book that I am using (Speak, Read, Write Navajo by Irvy W. Goossen) is really good and easy to use for self study. :)
How's your Mohawk coming along?

Well although I'm needing to go back and review a few things, it's going good. The lessons don't pile on a ton of vocab (at least not yet!), so it's not that bad work load wise.
It's just the verbs that were introduced in lesson 3 . . . :para:
Anywho, I ramble. It's going good!

I'm not familiar with that episode, but I'll see if I can find out for you.

Ok, I've watched a bit of it, and it seems to me that they where trying for some Eskimo language, like Inuktitut. But there were some sounds that seemed odd to me, so I'm not sure.
That would be the logical language for the people they were depicting in the episode, as most Eskimos that live in Canada speak one dialect or another of the Inuit language (Inuktitut is a dialect).

I'm not used to listening for them, but I'm pretty sure I heard ejectives, particularly in the speech of the woman when they're walking towards the castle, and Eskimo-Aleut do not have ejectives afaik. Of course I could have just misheard.
