I just love how the people on this list delve into translation exercises at the drop of a hat.... :-] Gya:lyo_ za\l zha\mya^dz vo_g+o\z vo_dho_m dzu_ zha\zho:l+.

It becomes a little interesting (to me, at least) how similar the word coined for "interbe" ('a_'wo_l+) is to the word for "from" (nga\vo/l). Everyday speakers of Rav Zarruvo (whose poets, by the way, would hold just this point of view) would not only hold onto a perception of interbeing that requires one side of the equation to be derived from the other, but also find ways to construct truly horrible puns from that linguistic coincidence.... :-] --- Bob's Original Hero Stuff Page!
