Reminds me of a friend who had a sort of humorous "dialect" of English, wherein plural was -i (/aj/) and "plural of plural" was -itices (/'ItIciz/) - don't know where he got that second ending from, but an examples he gave: "If you have more than one Lutheran, you have Lutherani, and if you have a group of Lutherani over here, and a group of Lutherani over there, then you have Lutheranitices" -- Cenedl heb iaith, cenedl heb galon A nation without a language is a nation without a heart - Welsh proverb ICQ: 18656696 AIM Screen-Name: NikTaylor42
