Well, Jarrda does have distinct words for four different intensities of heat: seosh hot tlash very hot klish uncomfortably hot zlaga unbearably hot There aren't corresponding words for cold extremes (how often would I need them in Texas?), just one word "plu" which means "less hot". -- languages of Kolagia---> +---<>--- Thryomanes /"If all Printers were determin'd not to print any (Herman Miller) / thing till they were sure it would offend no body, moc.oi @ rellimh <-/ there would be very little printed." -Ben Franklin
