I think you are being a bit unfair to poor Heather, since the thread you are
referring to happens to take place on CeltiConlang.
BTW I really enjoyed that post. After the numerals, the conjugation of "to be"
is definitely my second-favourite thing to watch and collect. I felt tempted to
counter-post the same thing in Wenedyk, but since I'm currently reworking a
lot, I succeeded in restraining myself.
I suggest you to cross-post it to Conlang.
