Well, Rokbeigalmki has the following: i /i/ = and au /O/ = either-or oi /Oj/ = and/or The |i| 'and' is contrasted with the feminine prefix |i-| /?i/, showing that the glottal stop is marginally phonemic in Rokbeigalmki. In Rokbeigalmki you don't put 'and' between adjectives describing the same noun: gledhwi sudfal sudtekei suddaliiyol '(a) wide, blue, (and) life-giving sea" If you did, it'd indicate that you were changing nouns. -Stephen (Steg) "she's either completely oblivious or a comic genius!"
