Yes, I was wondering what to do with Northern Saami. There are even more threads than I expected, including a language course someone put together years ago, consisting of six threads. I'll try to add them gradually... Thanks a lot for the threads you listed, I can add them straight away.

It's Seto & Võro that go together, not Veps and Võro. Seto is often considered a dialect of Võro. There's no Võro in the Veps thread. Thanks for making the list! I've added Meadow Mari numbers and a thread with Estonian, Finnish, and Hungarian numbers.

(again hiding my part in the discussion here to make this thread less cluttered for those just looking for links)

I think it makes more sense to post this here instead of in the threads for each language: Estonian, Võro, Seto, Livonian, Votic and Veps no longer use possessive suffixes. In Ingrian and Saami languages their use is also becoming much less common. (I did post the possessive suffixes for Skolt Saami, but their use is optional.) Some of these languages still use possessive suffixes in a few set situations (for example, Veps and Votic still use them in some kinship terms, but not elsewhere). In many of these languages (including Estonian and Võro; I'm not as sure about the others) they are also still sometimes found in old folksongs which have preserved those forms, especially the first person suffix -ni with kinship terms, but not used in regular speech.
