Hey; Here's the link to my new Kioshu website: This is my first conland. Let me know what you guys think! Urietsin (Uri'etsi'in) Swift One <<< Very nice page, a bit long to load though but maybe t'was my computer. i would like some more details re. the subclause: i would understand /John nik useshunk in tereu euko ubichuvi tivosh/ as meaning /[the fact] that [John wrote a book] is a bestseller/ because euko follows the verb /tereu/ and would refer to it. but i guess that euko actually refers back to the object of /tereu/, i.e., /useshunk/ within the preceding clause. in a japanese way that would have been /John nik in tereu useshunk ubichuvi tivosh/. so is euko referring back to the object of a preceding subclause or to the subclause itself? and how would you say "John who writes the book is a great author" ? offtopic: i can't quote with > sign because to write reply posts i cut a message from the daily digest and paste it on my mail. the daily digest solves the pb with the great number of posts on this list.
