Strange. Do you have access to an older version of Reader?

_biza?na Pedru_, where "?" is the IPA glottal stop symbol. Sentence 3 is _benda Maria_. Interesting..._biza?na_ means "brother" when the person in question is female, and "sister" when the person is male, but the sister of a woman is _benda_ while the brother of a man is _bi?ci_ (the "c" should have a hacek over it). :Peter
