Funny how I've never thought about that -- that is, the fact that "die" and "den" look exactly like the appropriate form of the definite article. Yet for me as a native speaker, they feel like completely different words -- I interpret them as relative pronouns, not as definite articles, even though they look and sound completely the same. Fascinating stuff, this language business. So, very plausible for TAKE. Cheers, -- Philip Newton <philip.newton@...>
