It's three weeks ago but I can't let the grammatical error slip by: Radan ni learne na le grelat Radan NEG himself NEG RFL shaves where _ni_ is the negation for anything except verbs, and _na_ is the verbal negation. Both are required; _na_ is a bit more required than _ni_. Irina Varsinen an laynynay, saraz no arlet rastynay. (myself) (English) (Nederlands)
