There's a perfectly good reason for that. When you enter "cat" or "rat", the script is searching for *cat* or *rat* not \<cat\> or \<rat\>. This is annoying with these short 3 letter sequences that often occur in longer words, but it is very useful for less common sequences. For example (and I haven't tried this in Yivrian or even in Kélen), *drink* should yield such words as "drink", "drinking", maybe "drinking glass" or "poison drink", etc. Very useful! -Sylvia -- Sylvia Sotomayor The Kélen language can be found at: This post may contain the following characters: á (a-acute); é (e-acute); í (i-acute); ó (o-acute); ú (u-acute); ñ (n-tilde);
