Inuktitut puzzles me.
I have no clue on how it works.
There is nowhere a grammar to be find on the whole world wide web as far as I know.

Has anyone got any concrete knowledge of the language and would like to share it?

I know it's polysynthetic, and that plural is partialy made by adding -t.

Please enlighten my ignorance!

Well, I honestly know nothing about it. But after doing a search I found:

http://www.shindale.com/inuktitut/hbgloss5.htm

this one has some sound files. They have more on the main page:

And a short course:

And this one talks about morphology:

It also looks like there are a good number of books and courses available for sale.

Hope that helps.

I don't speak Inuktitut but I do have the Arctic college textbooks, so if you have any specific questions just post them here.
