Well, I'm going to attempt this translation, but it's
going to produce my longest words ever:
"Never tickle a sleeping dragon."
(I suppose this could be rendered "Emesoliledosika
domidlanahaliha linesuwani", "ni" meaning "in"--I
already have a similarly constructed word-- but I
don't like the idea of pulling the negation out of the
verb, and I don't have a word meaning "ever" to put
with my negative pronouns, and I don't really want
Also, I have the beginnings of a new conlang! I call
it Kropja, which is short for -Cro-atian, -P-olish,
and -Y-iddish, the "flavors", the inspirations, of the
lang. All I know is that it will inflect fairly
heavily and that I have the phonology and orthography
down. BTW a word can begin with "zz"! It's the sound
/Z/--my "z" acts like the Polish z and the English h
in digraphs. I won't start serious work on this,
though, until I get Kayasanoda on the web and I can
install the word generator I downloaded onto someone's
