The Seven Benyamin [sic] for Hebrew Verbs

Introduction to Hebrew Verbal Patterns, Stems, Binyanim

A couple of brief introductions to the binyanims of Hebrew verbs. (Note that the first paper refers to them as "aspects", tough they really are more like voices.)

Some people may think that it's somehow possible to mechanically calculate the meaning of each Hebrew word from the tri-consonant root and the vowels; but that is an extreme oversimplification.

An incredibly useful tool for learning Russian. Adds stress marks, shows conjugations and declensions, and does more past that.

Micamo's amazonian language collection!

Apinaye (Macro-Ge)

Apurina (Arawakan)


Kokama-Kokamilla (Tupi-Guarani?)
Tapiete (Tupi-Guarani)


Wanano (Tucanoan)
Barasano (Tucanoan)


Carib (Cariban)
Wayana (Cariban)

Tiriyo (Cariban)
Another Tiriyo grammar (Cariban, apparently a different dialect)

Amahuaca (Panoan)



There's plenty more where that came from in Portugese if anyone's interested, I only bothered to post the English ones I've found so far. There's lots of smaller papers but I've only bothered to include the book-length descriptions here. There's also probably a lot more on the SIL Columbia website but it's so disorganized and messed up that finding anything there takes forever and usually happens by complete accident. I'll update this post if I get my hands on any more: Anyone else with Amazonian grammars to share, please do!
