    Just wanted to send a quick note: have you heard of Indigenous Tweets ( ? Just came across it and thought of you all over here. Could be interesting to either team up with the man behind the project or do a post on how indigenous languages are affected by social media.

    Hi Melissa, yes, I added it to the links as soon as I read about it on Living Languages and am currently trying to find a better way of organizing the links. Thanks for the request, I will definitely mention it in a future technology related posting. Thanks for thinking of us, I look forward to more comments in the future.

  5. I must express thanks to this writer just for rescuing me from this particular scenario. Just after looking out throughout the the web and getting basics that were not powerful, I believed my life was gone. Living without the solutions to the difficulties you have resolved all through your good article content is a crucial case, as well as those which may have badly damaged my entire career if I had not noticed the website. The capability and kindness in playing with all the details was precious. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not come across such a stuff like this. I can at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks a lot so much for your expert and results-oriented guide. I won’t hesitate to suggest your blog to anybody who needs recommendations on this subject.

    Hello, just wondering how confident I can be in the information presented here for Hawaiian Language pronunciation. I have come across a lot of inconsistencies on the web particularly in regard to the sounds of vowels and diphthongs. Are you confident in the information presented here? Thank you! :)
