Grandsire Hmm....interesting... non-subject "you" in Rokbeigalmki (and ool-Nuziiferoi) is also _esh_. subject "i" is _az_, which also appears in someone else's conlang.... weird... Here's the whole list for comparison: az /az/ = i ez /Ez/ = you iz /iz/ = she oz /oz/ = he uz /uz/ = it, neuter gender uhz /Vz/ = 'one', unknown, neutral gender For the "plural" forms, an _m_ is inserted between the vowel and the _z_. (amz emz, etc.). The non-subject forms use _sh_ /S/ in place of the _z_. -Stephen (Steg) ___________________________________________________________________ You don't need to buy Internet access to use free Internet e-mail.
