Say _that_ subject line three times fast!  ;)

I find it a fascinating coicidence that your Diom word-phrase "shanivalote" /SA"nIvA,lote/ could be a well-formed Asha'illen word! shaniv -a -l- -o -te VERB 3SF DO: UNS POL 3SF third person singular feminine DO: direct object follows UNS unspecified POL polite So, if we let shaniv mean "to verb," |shanivalote| would translate into Asha'ille as "She verbs someone(s) (that I want to show respect to)." I think I'll make it mean "to wish someone peace/content" in Asha'ille. Thanks for the word! :) How does |shanivalote| parse in Diom? Has anyone else found false cognates between unrelated conlangs? -- AA
