That I did. I've been given a reading list, and I will give you results

As for Jan's claim that the language in question is Polabian, I think
it's not quite true. Polabian in the form we know it was recorded very
late, and it shows considerable Germanic infulence. It certainly is the
genuine continuation of the language community in question, but it's not
very relevant to the discussion.
