It strikes me that one problemette in rendering this, is regarding customs
and norms of this sort. Two ways of rendering this phrase can be (in
Kernu): commy chomrews (in the fashion of the Comroig), when the style is
eccentric but not truly outlandish; commy h-alben (in the fashion of the
Scots), if the style is quite strange. Everyone else in the world is a
Bloody Foreigner, and their bizare fashions may be described with commys
tourcces (it's a bit Turkish). In other words, it might be nice to know a
bit about the two implied cultures: the narrator's and the prophet's; and
how odd crowblack hair is.
A neat story, though, and I'll definately work on it!
