ahhh... okay... ::stops wringin' paws, crackin' knuckles:: ;) I am in-current-state think of use in Tr:pang the strangeness to follow :) Noun - demonstrative- Number-Adjective ... kaynin na'mee wan tan... < near-1SG one brown...> ...this brown dog... Pan-pan!! Kaynin na'yu nas:tee tree! <Urgency!! Dog near-2SG nasty three> Warning!! There is three vicious dogs! Yes, I know that is oddly against all "those" implicational universals. But hey Tr:pang is a creole that descends from polyglot pidgins. Syntax (esp'ly in pidgins) is always mutant/mutating anyways. So... I can do whatever I waaaaaannnnNNNTTT, nyah nyah :P~~~ ... within some kinda reason, of course ;) czHANg, beginnin' to really like bein' perversely anti-universal-implicational ;) "Tá mé i mo idirgalachtach bhithiúnach." <<"I am an intergalactic space criminal.">>
