Sketch of Mingo Grammar The goal of this sketch is to provide some insight into the workings of Mingo grammar for people who are interested in the language. It is not intended as a textbook, per se, although students of the language will hopefully get some benefit from it as a reference tool. It is very much a work in progress, and quite incomplete at present.
E xecutive Summary In August 1993, the Mohawk Language Standardisation Conference met at Tyendinaga to decide on a standard, written form of Mohawk. The conference was co-sponsored by the six Mohawk First Nations and supported by the Ontario ministries of Education and Training, of Citizenship, and of Culture, Tourism and Recreation. The method followed for standardising the Mohawk language was to identify areas for standardisation, to establish consensus through consultation, and to hold a conference in order to reach a final decision. Prior to the conference, specific orthographic issues were identified through consultation meetings in all six Mohawk territories. Elders, teachers, linguists and fluent Mohawk speakers were invited to attend.
