Well, here's the Rosetta Stone: Ph'nglui mglwnafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn. In his house at R'lyeh dead Cthulhu lies dreaming. We are told that "Cthulhu" is more or less ['kKulu] or [tKulu], and that the orthography is known to be only a rough approximation to the phonology. The exclamation "Ia", with diaeresis over the "a", is also recorded. It may mean yes, or hurrah, or something of the sort. -- Not to perambulate || John Cowan <jcowan@...> the corridors || during the hours of repose || in the boots of ascension. \\ Sign in Austrian ski-resort hotel
