This is going to be my personal reference thread for learning Choctaw and Houma. Feel free to correct me or give me advice Chahta/Choctaw
Right now I'm using http://www.choctawschool.com/
It's not the most linguistically descriptive, but I think I can figure out the gist of how the language functions.
Double Consonant = gemination
subject + determiner + adj + number
katos yvmmvt lusa tuklo
/katos yəm:ət losa toklo/(?)cat distal-subject black two
those two black cats
issi yvt iti nuta ittonla tuk
/ɪs:ɪ jət ɪtɪ nota ɪt:õ:la/(?)deer subject tree under lie past
the deer lay under the treeHoma/Houma
Houma is a distinct language of the Western-Mukogean branch and not, as previously believed, a dialect of Choctaw or Mobilian Jargon. The evidence of this comes from the irregular sound changes when comparing the three. It it currently hypothesized that Houma contributed to the development of Mobilian Jargon, given the great extent of variation among Mobilian vocabulary.
Extrapolating and applying the phonetic changes, the sentences in Choctaw above may have been rendered in Houma:katus yama lusa toklu
ese ya nasape nata asa tok
