As a matter of fact, "jetrzen'" is regularly derived from "aeternum". Any similarity to existing Polish words is merely coindicental :) But seriously, having about 200 words now I noticed how suspiciously close some Wenedyk words come to their Polish equivalent, even in cases where I had never suspected cognacy (is that a word?).

Really? It is what I found on (with one exception, but AFAIK [s'] and [s_j] can be considered synonyms. Anyway, what I mean is the Polish pronunciation. I am curious about the proper SAMPA representation.

Thanks. Here at work I get a lot of boxes, no matter which encoding I try, but then, I don't have Thryomanes here. As soon as I come home I will try to download it and have a look again. Do you happen to know where I can find it? Pozdrawiam, Jan ===== "Originality is the art of concealing your source." - Franklin P.
