something interesting i noted with people's translations for the verb 'to
know': all but one person's conlang either had more than one word for the
english word 'to know' or omitted a word in one case.

Mark J. Reed's Methkaeki:
- bupeth: to know how [to]

Roger Mills' Kash:
- makaya [ .. valuñi ]: I-know [ .. method-its ]
- matimbat [ .. kotani ]: I-know [ .. its-word ]; know a person or be
familiar with
