Silly factoid: in Valdyan _rumsen_ means "job" (as in "piece of work", not "employment"). In the plural _rumsin_ it means "work", what a person does for a living or as a calling. If you ask people for their _rumsin_, they may answer "I'm a doctor" or "I'm a carpenter" (even if they don't happen to have an actual job at the moment) or "I have a house full of little kids" :-) Irina -- Varsinen an laynynay, saraz no arlet rastynay.
