Maybe, then, you'll also like the spelling of the newest Meghean word: _ushu_ ['uhu] "owl". It, too, effectively drops the 's'! :) (Of course, |sh| is the regular spelling of [h] in Meghean. The definite form _hushu_ ['juhu] "the owl" is of course equally regular, as is the accusative _ushuo_ ['uhow]. By know if should come as a surprise to nobody that the definite accusative possessive is _huishuo_ ['jujhow].) Andreas
