I think I just sent a blank letter to the list
by mistake... Forgive me.
I couldn't help but prick my ears up at this
bit of news. Is Arawakan a natlang? And
OSV? I need to find out about this language,
since Teonaht, as many people know, is also
OSV. I would be very curious to know what
other features this language exhibits. I was
also under the impression that there were
several natlangs that had OSV, but all of them
from the same small language group in South
Rob, could I see your "little grammar"? Is it
