Well, all that inner conflict about which list should I be on -- I
decided to join both.  My mind is too cheezed to read so much e-mail,
but I got a lot to talk about.

Got a book I wanted finally, so expect to see some Tech.  So far, I
actually have a few words set in stone (i.e for these words no more
phonemic tinkering and inverted negative serial tone fugue in 17/8 time
then sequeing into a Backstreet Boys medley performed by Lisa Simpson).

Turns out I have not one, but three definite articles!

?i "the" (near speaker)
?a "the" (near addressee)
?u "the" (somewhere else)

Why three?  Because Tech has a very aggressive system of pronomial
infixing, and you can pretty much conjugate any word, more or less.
Such is the case for my definite articles.  These three are indeed
associated with first, second and third person.  (Don't worry, I won't
get into inclusive and exclusive "we" or third person obviative, und so

I guess I'll unveil my list of pronouns (and other particles).  Too bad
Danny the Great Unoriginal One has _nu_ for a negative marker.  >:[

Again, Tech has a homepage.  Or more precisely at this moment, a wooden
frame with foundation stumps where the bathroom is going page.  [Home of the Semiannual
Wasabi Wars!!]

Now some closing advice: Stop hitting yourself!  Stop hitting yourself!
 Stop hitting yourself!
