afaigaffiahw = as far as i gather/get...? <<<<<< As far as I give a flying /fVk/ in a high wind. (Ascii-ipa due to stroppy mailserver, V is wedge) It's a fairly idolectical expression, meaning "this explanation suffices under these circumstances", but it's a sub-culture thang. On a related note, what's the longest _meaningful_ sentance (preferably in English, but I'm a flexible kinda guy) that we can think of that consists purely of obscenities? There's a conlang slant in there, as I'm on the verge of putting honorifics into a conlang, and I'm trying to do it purely lexically (rather than thru morphology). ************************************************************* This email and any files transmitted with it are confidential and intended solely for the use of the individual or entity to whom they are addressed.
