that’s interesting! a Seneca friend heard my Mom talking to me and said, “wow! does she have a strong Mohawk accent! She sounds like XX’s Mom from Kahnewake!” Who knew?? LOL funny enough, my grandmother’s family is from Kahnewake but not many spoke Mohawk.
So, your Mom was speaking French I take it? That’s very interesting! Thanks for the note!
What the hell does it have to do with any Iroquois language ? It’s merely a long back vowel as in much of France, except it has been diphtongised (and even this exception seems to have existed in France in the last century).
