    The quote caused a thought to arise in me. Does that mean that First Nations’ languages are more emotional than English which is heavily laden with choppy consonants?
    Also what about nouns and vowels. The Mohawk language and all of the Haudenosaunee language family contains a hugely different proporation of verbs as compared with English which is heavily noun based.
    Just got me to thinking and to feeling too. Thoughts arise. Nonclinging.
