Eskimo-Aleut Study Group

Postby vijayjohn » 2018-10-29, 5:21

Hi, everyone! Since a bunch of us have been talking about studying various languages from the Eskimo-Aleut family, and no one seems to have any objections to talking about it here, I've decided to create this thread. :)

Księżycowy specified our first assignment for Aleut, so I tried to complete it or at least go through all of the audio files and what was written along with them. I haven't done any exercises for the first lesson, though.

Aleut Group (Started 10/25/18)

Material(s):
  • Pribilof Anĝaĝigan Tuningin by Berge, et al.
  • Unangan Language Course by Berge, et al. (Which is equivalent to the first 5 lessons in the above textbook)

Assignments: (Dating format: month/day/year)
  • Lesson 1 Sections 3 & 4 (Cultural Notes and Grammar). Due 11/11/18
  • Lesson 1 Sections 1 & 2 (Vocabulary and Pronunciation). Due 11/04/18

Damn it, Vijay! I was going to create this thread today! :evil:

Well, since it's already here, I'll start posting the assignments in your post. (Unless you want the honor. :P )

I didn't get around to the assignment for Aleut, so I think we'll extend it into this week. That ok with you, Vijay?

Don't quiz me on the vocab, but I went through it all. (In at the last minute. :P )

Do you want to move on yet, Vijay?

Yeah, let's move on! I didn't memorize the vocab or whatever, either. :P (I remember "aang aang," though :lol:).

Ohh, I just realized I had accidentally gone ahead and gone through the entire first lesson last week. Lol.

Yep! (In other words, I don't have to do anything for next week, either. :whistle: But hey, more time for me to get caught up with some of these other languages, I guess!).

How's Aleut going, księżycowy?

Also, how's everyone else doing with the Eskimo-Aleut languages they were (thinking of?) studying?

But I'll get something going here.

Hey Vijay, is it ok if we put this on hold to focus on Cayuga?

Aww :( Well...okay. :P

Maybe I'll compensate for it by following Massimiliano's thread more closely. :D

Okay, but I was hoping to do a West coast language for a change, and I'm not sure I'll be able to wait. I might be able to, though. We'll see. :D

Well, nothing is stopping you from getting a head start. I'm not saying we need to start at the same time, nessicarily.
