hehe. Fun. In my unnamed IE-YACL: Luvot su tukku llum kartas musolnum. Was.Fond.Of the duke.nom boy.acc hearth.gen muscular.acc. I'm not 100% sure if I like "musolnum" (lit. having little mice) for "muscular." I might choose a different derivation for that word than the Latin. Perhaps "senum," from *sai-. But I'd like to find something interesting and different. --Patrick --------------------------------------------------------------------- Living your life is a task so difficult, it has never been attempted before.
