. What i tried to do was drop off everything "extraneous" on the end. So, since both -ant and -antu aren't confusable with any other form, and U is a pretty weak vowel, i made it drop off into a shwa. the ending "-ant" isn't pronounced /ant/, but /ant@/ - there's still something of the /u/ left. In the (full) hebraic orthography it's slightly more obvious, since the last consonant, Tav, is marked with a Shva vowel-mark. -Stephen (Steg) "Eze-guvdhab wa'hrikh-a tze, / "zhoutzii wa'esh," i eze-mwe."
