Dans un courrier dat=E9 du 11/07/99 02:19:54  , Padraic a =E9crit :

[see below]

interestingly enough, this Kernu say has a correspondence
in tayalat as =A7 45(ix)-f of the famous rak=E2m ha-marab code
with minor variant.

warning : tayalat is an ancient mesopotamian language
only recently discovered in the cunei-form of clay tablets
unearthed east of al 'am=E2rah, irak, upon uno's digging
up nuclear wastes stacked there for civilian purpose.
a few translation mistakes from tayalat into english
may occur due to :
(i) scanty information drawn from tablets as yet
(ii) radioactive disease of field searchers
(iii) kaputt automatic interlinear translating appliance
(iv) etc.

this fragment has been restored and decyphered by Pr.
jean-pierre dupont.

RES : resultative case (make, say, grow, think something, etc.)
DIR : directive case (accusative, dative, bene/malefactive, locative, etc)
NOM : nominative case
missing or illegible text of the tablet is construed [inbetween brackets].=20
[zh] as in 'asia', [sh] as in 'sure'.
