As the only one who didn't have two words, I ought to explain. There IS a
seperate word in Rhean for "to know" a person, |mirs'ak|, which is the same
word used for "recognise". But both |tilera vasig'| "contents of (a)
letter" and |miz vratakrhot| "the way/method to wield a sword" are pieces
of knowledge, THINGS you can know.
