Did you say OSV? Was: Arawakan.

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
on web?
