I tried it, but found nothing about ea onsite (only a notion of æ). Two more sites - - didn't help either ;) Otherwise the runic WWW seems full of 'divination' and 'majick'... which doesn't prevent people from writing nice reference pages sometimes: But I'm afraid to get lost in all this. So I'll be deeply grateful for pointers to any science-like outlines/overviews. Interestingly, conlanging somehow develops the greediness for firm facts... ;) Basilius
