I'm having to write quite complicated regular expressions in Perl for this, but they are, I suppose, still regular :) Is Ebisedian truly irregular, or just fiendishly complex? There are currently bits of two real conlangs represented there - the new one the Utterance Generator was written for, Korahamla (the one with all the hopefully-impenetrable mutations, and the in-progress Perl regular expressions of ever-increasing complexity, some of which actually work) and Toma Heylm (just the verbs at the moment - few derivational affixes so not very interesting; it just becomes fully conjugated and stops), as well as one prototype proof-of-concept dataset named "foobar" which will probably be going away :) Have finally figured out how to look at the Ebisedian Tutorial, BTW. My Acrobat 3.0 can't handle the extra letters, but Ghostview can (just barely legibly) display the .ps file. Yay. Amanda
