That link really raises more questions than it answers, but thanks for it anyway. It'll give me a decent place to start learning and investigating. While I'm on the subject of learning, I need to learn at least the rudiments of both Portuguese (Brasil) and Mandarin as quickly as possible, for a contract I might end up working on. Right now, I have a fair handle on the phoneme inventories of both languages, and something of their typology. I have access to Pimsleurs for both languages, and to Henrik's excellent flashcard site (which gets better each time I check it), but do any of you know any other free (preferably) online resources?
