Notes for modifications and/or reverts[edit]

If I happened to bring changes to an article, or if I reverted one or more of your edits, and you think it's disputable, please don't hesitate to add your comments and/or questions on my discussion page. I am not always aware of my mistakes either, so I am grateful when others notice them and bring the appropriate changes.

Satsugu Dialect Division[edit]

According to me (2012). Not sure about Satsuma/Ōsumi separation (seemingly no major differences between dialects). Tokara dialects have not been studied well, no clue as to their morphology; do they constitute a separate branch? Not exactly sure if Western Ōsumi Island dialects are closer dialectally to Southern Satsuma or the rest of the Ōsumi Islands.
