Well, it seems to work again. So whether David has managed to solve the problem, or the listserv recovered from its fever by itself :)) .

No, but sometimes it's the best one :)) . After all, since when in computer science the "logical" solution is the best? :))))

Not yet, but I'm thinking of it (I'm currently working with pieces of vocabulary of Itakian, and I've made a nice discovery: for the Itakians, it' the left side which is good and the wrong side wrong :)) . In short, the adjective for "left": 'a|xra\, also means "fair, just", while the adjective for "right": xo/fno|, alos means "unfair", and is even nominalised as 'ixo/fno|, which is a noun of class 8, used for very big objects, but also with pejorative shades of meaning :)) . Hehe, one thing is sure, the Itakians are not unprejudiced "enlightened" people :)) . But at least they are funny in their stubborn way to consider things the other way round :)) . Christophe. Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
