Does anybody know of any studies concerning the disappearance of
WER(E) and GUMA in English and their replacement by MAN?

Dear Fellow-Shawnee Grammarians,

I am interested in contacting those working on Shawnee. I worked
translating Shawnee texts under the guidance of C. F. Voegelin many
years ago and am belatedly returning to my fieldnotes, mostly with
members of the Williams family (Mary, Jean, Robert, etc.) of Little
Axe. Being in the mountains of Taiwan I do not have access to native
speakers and would enjoy sharing information on Shawnee grammar and
translation.
