Seconded. I'm really not sure if I would have the time, but that just sounds so tempting...Something like a bulletin board, where conversations can be preserved. It should link to an online grammar and dictionary, of course. BTW Dirk, would you mind telling us a little more about Chemehuevi? You said that it was a Numic/Uto-Aztecan language--any more details? :Peter -- Oh what a tangled web they weave who try a new word to conceive!
