Depending on which meaning of "crazy" is intended, this could be translated differently, but I'll assume "insane". My system of evidential/tense suffixes has been undergoing revision, and I don't have the latest copy of the documentation on my laptop. If I'm crazy, I probably don't care much about evidentials in any case. So I'll leave them out. Lègjarhij, règjarhij, lhègjarhij naj. lè-gjarhi-j rè-gjarhi-j lhè-gjarhi-j naj 1s-insane-* 2s-insane-* 1p -insane-* all *the final -j signifies a verb form that is inspecific with regard to tense or aspect. -- languages of Azir------> ---<>--- hmiller (Herman Miller) "If all Printers were determin'd not to print any email password: thing till they were sure it would offend no body, \ "Subject: teamouse" / there would be very little printed." -Ben Franklin
