- Semitic languages do the same thing, which is one of the reasons people seem to like talking about mysterious Semitic-Celtic (look, they both end in |-tic|! :-P and start with /sE/, if you pronounce 'Celtic' the Bostonian way :-P ) "connections". for example: L- "to" + -I "me" = LI "to me" MA3A "with" + -KUM "y'all (m.)" = MA3AKUM "with y'all (m.)" (Arabic) BIL3ADEY "without" + -HA "her" = BIL3ADEHA "without her" (Hebrew) DI "of" + -EYH "him" = DIDEYH "his" (Aramaic) -Stephen (Steg) "oh living in captivity it's hard to know what's real; you can't take what they give you, but you get what you can steal. and half the world is cold and hard, but all the world's a stage - and this is my performance, growing up inside a cage..." ~ 'growing up inside a cage' by jason spitz
