Re: CHAT: Happy Birthday

Hmm. Isn't today Christophe Grandsire's 26th birthday?
(Why do I even remember that? :)

Happy birthday! Or as we say in Cein:

"Nost far!"

Sometimes you hear "Nost aleiss!" and "Nost felen!"

nost      far
birthday  good
'happy birthday'

_Aleiss_ and _felen_ both mean 'happy'. _Far_ is mutated
_mar_ meaning 'good'. _Nost_ can mean both 'birth' and
'birthday'. Stress is always on the last syllable. Oh, and
{f} is pronounced /v/.

This might be a nice translation exercise, come to think
of it.
