> What's the origin of suryer? *Surrigere?
Economy of replies time:
Irina and Boudewijn have said they use the term Linguafictie (sp?) for
created languages. From that I've used the terms
Linguafiction=Conlanging and Linguafictor=Conlanger. This could be
Linguificteur in French perhaps?
This issue came up on the NZ Presbyterian list this year. I surprised
at least one person there by saying there is more evidence for an
ancient Israelite cult worshipping YHWH and his asherah than there is
for an ancient Englisc cult worshipping Eostre. May I recommend
_Stations of the Sun_ by Ronald Hutton. It's scholarly, readable and
tweaks the venerable beards of Folklorists, Christians and Pagans, in no
particular order. That's all I want to say on this issue as I know
where my biases lie.
I do remember reading somewhere that the wording on the agreement over
Easter could be interpreted to allow us Hypernotians to celebrate Easter
as a Spring observance rather than a Autumn one as it currently is for
me. Now if we can get Christmas moved to July....:)

IElang. I know *esu- means 'good', but what does *-dheH mean in this
