Francais ne me plais. Je pense qu'elle est -- shit, how do you say "ugly"? Eh, nevermind. Tried to pick up French for my Ph.D., decided to become a medievalist in earnest, switched to Latin. I like the sound of your language, what little bit I hear. Got a sample? I could go for a translation exercise, if it's short. :) I like your daring of using English roots. Oh, incidently, I *almost* have Midd Englisc done, by which I mean I have tentative declensions, articles, and pronouns. --------------------------------------------------------------------- Living your life is a task so difficult, it has never been attempted before.
