<<There are 13 basic noun cases, with a separate mark for genitive.  To

"intensity", and possession.>>

Huh.   This translates to "mouth of (the) dragon in"?   Meaning, is the thing 
in the mouth or in the dragon?   'Cause the way it's marked now makes it look 
like it's in the dragon, not the mouth...   If you wanted to double case 
mark, though, you could make a construct case.   Then you'd get "dragon 
mouth.construct.inessive", coming out to something like "the dragon, in the 
mouth of".   Anyway, though, I missed the original post.   "Morgenon"?   
Must've slipped right by me as I had my e-head turned...
