- As always, g0miileg0 rocks! In addition to its own intrinsic greatness, seeing extended texts in it always reminds me of the days when there was someone on Conlang who would always send messages in an extreme version of 1337-speak which included words from other languages. What they would say was usually interesting, but it was hard as heck to puzzle out the meaning from the way they wrote it :-P .

- Why |zz| for /ks/? Because of the /ts/ in "pizza"?

- |radzj'r| is the general term for 'agree with'?

- Although the degree of possession someone has over their soul is a highly variable function of their belief system. What's the difference between the inalienable "personal belongings" and the alienable "property"?

- I believe this may have been talked about before, but does your g0miileg0 use of the compound |dzjiiaa-dzjen| for 'earthling' have any connection to the term "Terragen" in David Brin's 'Uplift' novels? -Stephen (Steg) "...i sudkhada-a twan."
