Indeed, it is perfectly regular, and their aren't that many deviations from my "Latin violation scheme". Maggelity? Strange, AFAICT it would be quite easy to pronounce for a Pole. I can pronounce them myself, without much trouble; a real Venedian would probably think that I am a Venedian from abroad :)) BTW The word "Maggelity" really ought to be lexicalized. Why don't you submit it to Oxford, Webster etc.? Your fame will be eternal. Cia gl/orza jery jetrzna. (l/ = Polish l with stroke) [ts_jA gwoZa jErI jEtSnA]
