Since whenever they decide to take up their language and write it! A good view on the process of creating a Standard for a language that isn't (or hasn't been in a long time) a Standard can be had by paying attention to what's going on in Scots now. Padraic. ===== To him that seeks, if he knock, the door will be opened; if he seeks, he shall find his way; if he searches for a way, he shall find his path. For though the Way is narrow, it's wisdom is written in the hearts of all: if ye would seek and find Rest, look first within! [The Petricon] -- Ill Bethisad -- <> Come visit The World! -- <> .
