. Well, in Rokbeigalmki abbreviations are the first syllables of the words' roots, up till the first vowel, strung together and separated with '' (double apostraphes). examples: ^dzuwaurg^dafal^ri.hlao^semoz-a = dzu''fa''ri (the rokbeigalmki new year, "the festival of the widening of the circle of the sun") nga'aoledh-a tza'lesna-a rokbeigalmki-a = ao''le''ro (my year-number for using the rokbeigalmki calender in RL, "from the creation of the rokbeigalmki language") kamble-a tza'weithaad sudrabauk = ka''wei''ra (rokbeigalmki non-martial capoeira-like art form, "the dance of rhythmic brawling") -Stephen (Steg) "Eze-guvdhab wa'hrikh-a tze, / "zhoutzii wa'esh," i eze-mwe." ___________________________________________________________________ Why pay more to get Web access?
