- How does that work? From putting together the definition of "supine" in my English dictionary and the verb charts in my Latin-English dictionary, it looks like the supine means "(having been) verbed"... how would that + i:re come up with an active "going to verb" concept? -Stephen (Steg) "...and this is why one should not try to create an conlang based on a language you don't already know..." :-)
