i would like to work with fiona stewart.

languages i am interested in:

Wolof: - language native to Senegal, Mauritania, Gambia, and the native Wolof people - agglutinative language - a Senegambian language, which are characterized for their consonant mutation - not a tonal language - SVO - ~ 12 million speakers worldwide - Latin orthography - probably won't be that hard to find text to work with

Alabama: - language native to the southeastern US - spoken by the Alabama-Coushatta tribe - ~370 speakers - agglutinative language - SOV - super threatened, not a lot of good grammar resources

Nahuatl: Western Huasteca - language native to Mexico - ~400k speakers - SVO - nontonal language - Latin orthography - not a lot of grammar resources,,,
