- Hmmm, a Judean Greek-lang....that sounds like another interesting project, but right now i'm just trying to figure out what kind of Greek influences there would be on my Judean Romancelang. I've already decided that the Greek legal and other terminology found in the Talmud is pretty much automatically in, such as _sanhedrîn_ [SanhEz'ri:n] "highest legislative/judicial body", of which the modern Judean conculture will have a few. -Stephen (Steg) "yo? dos iz der šteg?"
