No, we do have separate words for that, becuase those are different concepts. What I mean is that where in English you have the same word, but are used differently (syntactically) if it is transitive or intransitive. I was talking not long ago about this with my ling prof, and he said it's rather interesting. I gave him some examples, but I can't remember them off the top of my head. Give me some time and I'll tell yoyu. -------ferke Ferenc Gy. Valoczy Es to pilni'gi noliedzu!
