[cut] This has a passing resemblance to Pleknu Gamna-zoh /plEk nu gam na zA./ (A. = back rounded open), "Those Who Fell From Stars", a people from an old story of mine who's name (as well as one other phrase in the story) are the inspiration for my still-not-created 2nd-and-a-half conlang "Mother Language". But Pleknu Gamna-zoh were alien invaders. I guess the similarity ends there :) -Stephen (Steg)
