That's how it is in W, I made a mistake. It should've been: Pisani' pitika'-kwa Also, other modifiers, for instance: Pisani' pibiiwazi'v-kwa G7-house G7-place-tree-loc-my My house in the forest Pisani' pil pibiiwazi'ta-kwa G7-house beyond G7-place-tree-abl-my My house beyond the forest -- "Cats are rather delicate creatures and they are subject to a good many ailments, but I never heard of one who suffered from insomnia." -- Joseph Wood Krutch ICQ #: 18656696 AIM screen-name: NikTailor
