Hmm, at sixteen (two years ago!! I'm getting old!)... sex: check, drugs: only if nicotine and alcohol count, religion: check, socialism: check, drinking too much: check, vomiting in the street: check. Speaking of interesting textbooks, Campbell's "Historical Linguistics- An Introduction" (Edinborough Univarsity Press, 1998) is a good book, although he does emphasise the Mayan languages a bit. Dan, who has stopped vomiting in the street. ---------------------------------- La plus belle fois qu'on m'a dit "je t'aime" c'était un mec qui me l'a dit...
