No problem. Lots of threads turn into discussions of English minutiae, so a few threads on Dutch minutiae are a refreshing change. I also meant, but forgot, to praise Andreas (I think it was) for introducing the word "Dutchistan" to our vocabulary. It is so perfectly inelegant as to be quite elegant in its multicultural way. Is there any language but English in which "Dutch" survives as the ethnonym/language name? -- John Cowan <jcowan@...> I amar prestar aen, han mathon ne nen, han mathon ne chae, a han noston ne 'wilith. --Galadriel, _LOTR:FOTR_
