Ok, but I'd prefer a topic that I'm less ignorant about. Urianians probably will be more specific: "Brigam di vikte." (I invite you to dance. = Invite-1s 2s.acc dance-inf) Or less direct: "Birut vikta mu izni?" (Would you go to the dance at my side? = go-2s.pres.subj dance[n.] 1s.dat Pronounciation note: m mutates to n before d. Or maybe they would phrase it completely differently, at least the more experienced flirters of them. Gaajans were more direct and less specific: "Ane iltat?" (Will you go with me? = go-with interr-you-do-to-me)

Not to the list, I suppose. LEF
