Is someone a little grumpy?

It's simple, really. Stop me before I start this group up again.

Only enough to not want to see you burn yourself out again.

From what I can see, you're doing a good job focusing on Polish and German at this point, but don't be too quick to jump into languages you're interested in but can't handle just yet given where you currently are.

We can do a Cayuga study if you have WhatsApp or HelloTalk. I use the Navajo keyboard for GBoard to type my Cayuga. If you can share Wadewayestanih materials with others that would be great. I read that book daily and would like to practice with somebody for once



Thanks

I started to wonder why Iroquoian languages don’t capitalize incorporated nouns when writing their languages like

or advanced punctuation rules to make the meanings more recognizable in writing

Sgę:nǫ:' Bingles!

I'm sorry, I somehow missed your other messages a few months ago!

Where as I can't really share any thoughts on the capitalization or punctuation of incorporated nouns, I am glad to see you back!

Where else is this kind of capitalization/punctuation attested anyway? Irish does something similar, but only with proper nouns as far as I can tell. To what extent to Iroquoian languages have a written tradition anyway? I'm not sure there's been enough of a long time for such orthographic details to be ironed out anyway.

Yes, Irish only capitalizes proper nouns when there is eclipsis. Other nouns stay lower case.
