That is indeed the title.

Yes, that is correct.

The Idea aspect of "Talk" indeed means language. Talk collects Rikchik as an Agent: Rikchik is doing the Talking. Thus, these 2 glyphs are "Language that is done by Rikchiks" or "Rikchik Language". Source means cause in this case. What is the language causing? Happy, as a verb. Thus, being happy because of the Rikchik language.

Me neither, but I try. :) Also, I have added pdf files to the above page, where appropriate. You don't get the hand-crafted feel when you read the PDF source though. :) -(o- Also also, to respond to Diana's post: rikchiks don't swim (at least, not for long, or without breathing equipment) but one can feel the wind whipped up by a fast-signing rikchik.
