Re: "Each Other"

In Rihana-ye, "each other" is vesese,  which literally would be something
like other-this-this, but the duplicated "this" (sese) is the standard reflexive
(its resemblence to the Latin is pure coincidence, incidentally), and ve- is
(among other things) the marker for third person pronouns. So a less literal
translation might be "other-self."
