Neat isn't it? I was stealing it for my conlang. It has inverse number already, so this feature would fit nicely too, I thought. My interest for linguistics actually was started by this book (the English version) back in 1987. So it was like sentimental journey to see it again. You can imagine that I'd like to print it and read it all. I'm trying to get a version 4 of Acrobat to view it. Rob
