Some langs are better for phonology ideas, others for morphology, and still others for syntax. Probably just about any language you can mention has one or more interesting features that could be pointed out. But some languages, either because they're more widely spoken or for other reasons, are easier to find good documentation on. Japanese might be a good language to start with, since there's no shortage of books on it, and it's so different from many other familiar languages.
