ooh ! i get to do expletives ! problem : bac doesn't have any concept of religion, and i'm reluctant to give it the sex taboo, so i'm a bit short on potential obscenities the verb |Pok| 'to hit' can be used to mean 'to fuck' but it's not very rude ( you do have to distinguish |licek Ponk| 'they're fucking' from |licek Ponkk| 'they're fighting' ! ) so it's time to introduce an expletive pro-form, which is going to be |jahkib| /'dZaxkIb/. no meaning, but it ranks about about 7 on the rudity richter scale so : Jahkiberer* — sot Karh wher JAHKIB-er-er — SOT KARh WhER /'dZaxkIbE4E4 _ sOt kar\ WE4/ #-IMP-yourself — I hate* \you * you could also say Jahkiber, as there's no need for the verb to be reflexive ** topic depleted : i hate you but you don't (necessarily) hate me bn __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
