<snip> I did this with B-G-2-3 (Blue-Above-Green-Below) some years back. In appearance they are somewhat akin to the Horta of Star Trek fame, but they speak by varrying the color and pattern of their skin. I chose to write the language by assigning a one-letter code to each color and a one-number code to each pattern. There was some thing akin to onomotopoea in the color choices of some words others seem to be utterly random assignment. Unfortunately, etymology is a science that never developed among the B-G-2-3ese. Adam ===== Fached il prori ul pañeveju djul atexindu mutu chu. -- Carrajena proverb
