Interesting. I was working on something for Laafaah earlier today - a postpostion |ha| to mean "a" or "one" of something - e.g. "putin" ["pMt1J]* would be "putin ha", pronounced ["pMt1JJ1] - but I wondered it it would sound too dorky. *"putin" = "the baubble", "this baubble" or "my baubble" depending on context. _________________________________________________________________ Help STOP SPAM with the new MSN 8 and get 2 months FREE*
