Far be it from me to pass myself off as an advanced conlanger, but I was thinking that trying to force yourself to give the Teinvard rendition of really complex ideas a good tester -- especially something with many embedded clauses. How about something like: That guy that you were talking to, whose name I think might possibly be Mario, only eats vegetarian food and food not prepared in oil. Apart from this, the suggestions everyone was giving looked quite effective too. Good luck, Matt33 __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Find a job, post your resume.
