Ebisedian tutorial update

Hi All.

Here is your latest dose of Ebisedian. ;-)  I've just updated the
Ebisedian tutorial to cover "nominator sentences". Nominator sentences are
sentences consisting of a single noun or noun-phrase. They act like topic
selectors or titles (but occur much more frequently in Ebisedian than
titles would in English), and give rise to a very common topic-comment
construction. Because of the frequency this construct is used, I felt it
was basic to understanding Ebisedian prose, and hence needed to be covered
early on in the tutorial.

As usual, it all seems clear to me, but I need feedback to know if the
tutorial is making is sufficiently clear. So, comments, criticisms,
flames, fan-mail, etc., are hereby solicited. :-) The latest tutorial may
be found at:



"How are you doing?" "Doing what?"
