This is a convenient place to dump notes for now. I am by no means done with my selections.

Berik

From Ethnologue [1]: Code: bkl, Pop: 1200, Status: Threatened, Script: Latin, Location: Indonesia. I know the people who did the Bible translation. Based on a skim of the grammar sketch [2] it looks largely agglutinating with some fusional tendencies (jila ~ jalbili, nasona ~ nasbawena verb conjugation).

Bible: [3] Wikipedia: [4] [5] [6]

Chaldean Neo-Aramaic

[7] [8] [9] Bible: [10] I'm already learning a Semitic lang.

Fijian

[11] Many texts [12]
