What a coincidence, because Vya:a:h does something similiar; but at the moment, I've only deciphered the present (default) and the past (_rrhaux_ prefix to verbs as well as nouns, ie. _voa_ day --> _rrhauxvoa_ yesterday; _yyigkja:_ he performs a dance --> _rrhaux'yyigkja:_ he performed a dance).

Irina, I like those words _tylan_ and _hyn_. How is it that y is pronounced in Ilaini/Valdyan? Matt33 __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Find the one for you at Yahoo! Personals
