Well, depends. To me, "pain" would seem to fall under Living. I mean, a system like that would be bound to have words that could fall under one or another and would just be arbitrarily chosen which one it would fall under. Living could be defined as ONLY living things, and Non-Living as ONLY non-living tangible things, and then concept would be non-tangible nouns, like pain. Or, you could make it interesting and have things like "fire" fall under Living. -- "Old linguists never die - they just come to voiceless stops." - anonymous ICQ: 18656696 AIM Screen-Name: NikTailor
