One note on Imart's grammar: when I said it was hard to use in class today, I meant it--there are no page numbers, but instead about 3500 bullet points, and the index is too short to have anything useful in it.  But at the same time, it is very thorough on a lot of critical issues, and by far the best existing reference on the language.  I wish I'd had access to it as I was learning the language, though I guess using my "teachers" as elicitation subjects to figure out some of this stuff developed useful skills.  And no doubt built character and grew hair on my chest.  Just like trying to find something again that you read in Imart's grammar if you didn't bookmark it.

Left-over master's thesis? Those things are like a surgeon's tool that gets left inside the body.
