This release DOES NOT apply to any proprietary language materials not released into the public domain which comprise lexicons, word lists, grammar references, thesaurus, or rule sets which are subject to separate confidentiality agreements and which have not been placed into the public domain by interested parties for any Native American Languages or Language Contributors who choose to keep their proprietary materials protected.

Well: after having divided the contents on more pages than the four mentioned above I noted that we will have quite a lot of work out of these lists. If you are interested to read some of my considerations please have a look at the OmegaWiki blog about machine translation and WZ. Thanks! --Sabine 10:00, 12 September 2006 (CEST)
