For those who haven't seen it, you can find a list of Japanese-Ryukyuan resources that I compiled here: http://zbb.spinnwebe.com/viewtopic.php?p=831728#p831728 http://www.incatena.org/viewtopic.php?p=831728#p831728

Edit: Reposting here in case board goes down again:
Hakaku wrote:The [following] list features only articles and documents that are available online (a select few might require university or library access), and excludes most general wordlists (since we could find a few hundred lists for Okinawan).


Japanese-Ryukyuan
An introduction to Ryukyuan languages, by Michinori Shimoji & Thomas Pellard
Origins of the Verbalizer Affixes in the Japonic Languages, by Tyler Lau

Amami
Hachijo-Daito
Japanese
General Dialects
Kagoshima Dialect
Miyako

Is that David Peterson our David Peterson?

I guess not; apparently they have different middle initials.

Does anyone have Old Norse sound changes from PGermanic => Old Norse => Modern Scandinavian + Icelandic ? I had an idea for a project.

Does anyone have any resources on welsh verbs, nenets verbs and moods, and complete list of grammatical moods?

If you mean "a cross-linguistic list of all grammatical moods/modes/modalities that arise in more than one language" then the answer is almost certainly "no; because no such list could exist, since languages change and only about half have been described". (Mood/mode/modality is the most diverse, both semantically, and in the ways it's shown, of all grammatical categories of verbs.)

If you mean "a list of all grammatical modalities, modes, or moods, that arise in more than one language-family and more than one sprachbund", then the answer would be "I don't know of one, but there may be one".

But I'm pretty sure you can find a list of all moods and modalities that more than one Bible-translator or missionary has found useful by following this link.

Might as well share this in case it hasn't been posted already:
The Nordic Languages: An International Handbook of the History of the North Germanic Languages, Volume 2

The title says it all. It's an essential companion for anyone interested in the history of the North Germanic languages, even if you're not going to use it for conlanging purposes. It's a bit over 1000 pages, so there's plenty of information packed into it [;)].

Gordon's ideas were half of the inspiration for my conlang Alpic (the other half being WeepingElf's Old Albic). I used Gordon's reconstruction of the vowels of his Proto-Indo-Aegean in the diachronics of Alpic.

The Resource Thread

Post by roninbodhisattva » Fri 10 Feb 2012, 08:44

So I thought we had one of these, but I think it would be a good idea to have a thread that people could post resources for natural languages and linguistics that they've found on line, or have a place to request such resources. I have plenty I can put here, for one.

Problem is, I don't have a whole lot of time right now, so I'll start witht he one I wanted to post anyway:

An Outline of the Morphology and Phonology of Saanich, North Straits Salish

An amazing resource, that one.

Why, yes, yes we did have one of these and yes we still do. viewtopic.php?f=29&t=22
I don't know why it's in Teach & Share, but don't despair. You are not the first to make a repeat thread.

It's 4:00pm, and when I see the word "Saanich", I get hungry and start thinking of the Tubby's near this library.
