Dear linguistlist colleagues, we added some Udghe texts to our world 
language corpora. Udeghe is said to belong to the Amur group of the 
Tungus-Manchurian language family. It is interesting to note that it has 
the glottal stop like many American Indian languages of the South and 
North Americas. Do you know if any linguist compared Udeghe to 
AmerIndian languages? I'm going to do it, but I'm not sure if it has 
been already done. I'd appreciate your sending me your e-mail messages 
directly to my e-mail address yutambhotmail.com Looking forward to 
hearing from you soon, remain yours sincerely Yuri Tambovtsev
