Thank you so much for your reply!

My project would certainly benefit from your knowledge of the
languages involved and your geographical position in the world and
the experience that comes with it.  So, I'd love to collaborate with
you and share my work.

I'll try to e-mail you tonight with where I am in the project, what
I've accomplished so far, and what ideas I have.  A lot of my notes
about phonology and sound changes are scatterbrained, but I'm
working on combining a series of charts I've made in to a single,
common sense MS Word chart.

Anyway, thanks again for your offer and interest.  I'll e-mail you
