No, but you know, that would be an interesting idea. And it would be easy too, since almost nothing is understood about Harappan language. Based on the minute amount of material that's been transliterated, the consensus of the small group of people working on it is that it's related to the Dravidian languages of southern India. This is, of course, almost certainly wrong, but that doesn't stop people -- even when experts -- from guessing. =========================================== Tom Wier <artabanos@...> AIM: Deuterotom ICQ: 4315704 <> "Cogito ergo sum, sed credo ergo ero." ===========================================
