Unfortunately, my conlang Wenedyk is much too young and small for this kind of language. That's why I'll do it in Hattic instead: Ips sfoš, uzaf zõ! (singular) Ipsas sfoš, uzaf uf! (dual) Ipsac sfoš, uzaf uš! (plural) "Fuck yourself, I hate you!" ipsaz = to fuck (ips, ipsas, ipsac = IMPERATIVE sg., du., pl.) sfoš = reflexive pronoun (ACC) uzuz = to hate (uzaf = PRESENT INDICATIVE 1s) zu = you (sg.) (zõ = ACC) ju = you (du.) (uf = ACC) juš = you (pl.) (uš = ACC) As you can see, the reflexive pronoun <sfoš> does not change under the influence of number. Jan This sentence applies only when the object of the sentence is just one person. Alternatives are: ===== "Originality is the art of concealing your source." - Franklin P.
