The thief of greetings. Perhaps towards greetings would be a better way of putting it. (It's something of an accusative preposition, is ri.) "Kedhai" is more salutatory expressions than greetings, though, including thankings and leave-taking phrases. No worries, though. No worries at all. Laimes, Wright.
