Two interesting things to share today.
First is this page, containing grammar textbooks for a total of eight languages: Serbo-Croatian, Czech, Georgian, Macedonian, Polish, Romanian, Russian, and Slovene. The most valuable of these due to scarcity of good resources are probably Georgian, Macedonian, and Slovene.
The second is simply a Wikipedia page on a language I never knew about until today called Polabian, an extinct Slavic language with a huge amount of German influence. One look at the Lord's Prayer shows just how extensive this was:
What a pity a language as unique as that ended up dying out.
