Still going with the learner’s guide revisions, a bit over half done now, and deep into the verb marking section that I wrote when I didn’t fully understand the wonderfully weird tense system (and when I was still a bit unsure about laminals versus apicals in the verb classes). So in the meantime, here’s a link to the handout of a talk I gave on this wonderful tense system. It was given at the LSA last year. Incidentally, Yan-nhaŋu verbs belong to 6 different classes, and here are the possible past tense forms: -nha, -na, -ṉa. There’s also an optional variant –nyi which appears to be a stylistic variant borrowed from Djinang.
