Hmm... ['me too'] Hafta borrow a word for 'flute' (not sure if Kaðuhanne use 'falut' or 'falud'...), but: "faludcaffy zikhawappades; hama hi zikmifaluddades." falud-ca- fy zik- hawap- a- des Flute.ACC.LNK INDEF.Possession.VB.PRES hama hi zik- mi- falud-a- des That NEG INDEF.AGT.Flute.VB.PRES [LNK=linker (word separator) INDEF=indefinite pronoun, AGT=agent marker (is that the name for it? like Eng. -er or -ist?)] Roughly "One has a flute; that does not make him a flutist." *Muke! (who actually has an idea or two for _different_ conlangs now.)
