Oh how could've forgotten that site; I've been there numerous times! Everson's been working hard on so many of the more obscure scripts. HIs homepage, by the way, is in both Irish Gaelic and English (it is a site hosted in Ireland). By the way, I read that the Burushaski language (an isolate spoken by a small community way up in the Indian-Pakistani Himalayan country) has no established script. Is that true, and could this be an opportunity for me (and anyone else who wants to help) to devise a script for them? I just need to know the phonology and common affixes, phonemic sequential rules, even a basic vocabulary, and whatever else would be the most helpful in working out a writing system... Danny
