I think Spanish "agua" is one of the best words for water.... /aGwa/ (G = velar voiced fricative). It's a very soft, 'flowing'-sounding word. Although for some reason for Rokbeigalmki i invented _dwi_, which also sounds pretty good to me, but not as good as "agua". -Stephen (Steg) ___________________________________________________________________ You don't need to buy Internet access to use free Internet e-mail.
