Tell that to the Greeks, with their specialized poetic words. I have a vague and helpless impression that my languages are chasing after Greek in the regards of a very specific vocabulary. Ah, well. I can change meanings to make things more useful. Feilom "weary" also spawning lavom "spirit-weary", which changed to "bored". Odd. Laimes, Wright.
