If you want, I can help you with learning Votian
(Uralic/Finno-Ugric/Balto-Finnic; spoken by approx. 25 people in 5
villages [incl. Krakolye and Luzhitsy] in Leningrad Oblast, north of
Ivangorod in Russia), youngest speaker is in his early 60s). Obviously I'm
not a native speaker, but my knowledge of it is thorough enough that I
could carry on a conversation with a Vote in the unlikely event that I
were to meet one. However, I do use it occasionally in speaking with
Estonians, sometimes with amusing results.


"Nature and Nature's Law lay hid in night; God said, "Let Tesla be" and
all was light." - B.A. Behrend at AIEE Conference, May 18, 1917
