Cein doesn't have initial |g| except when mutated, and it doesn't have final |l|, only |ll|, so the closest to |gol| we get is |coll| which means 'cloak'. The famous first line in the poem "Rhats·a·ddel" is |coll o fenel| "heaven's cloak". If we turn that around we get |menel o goll| "cloak's heaven" (which doesn't make much sense, at least not in that poem). No |sop| so far, unfortunately. No |sop| or |gol| in Seimi or Rinya either. ||| daniel -- danielandreasson @ | "You can't post that on the Internet, you don't even know if it's true!" - Lisa Simpson to Homer.
