Here are some tasks awaiting attention:
  • Split : maybe make a seperate Biloxi grammar article?

1. You should tell a bit more about the livelihood of the speakers of this language.

2. It needs to be explained why the grammar you are using was written several dozen years after the last native speaker had died. You should address the sources available on this language in general.

3. If possible, you could say some words about the classification of the language. G Purevdorj (talk) 21:33, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Okay. I'll add this info to the article. To make things clear, the reason I'm using Einaudi is because she is basing her analysis on a number of different sources (Dorsey, Matthews, Haas) who my impression is all only give part of the big picture and have their own inconsistencies.
