Wa^nsansanu has no contact with any humans other than English-speaking descendents of American colonists, so country names would just be taken from the English, thus ami^dika =3D America [amirika] i^nglan =3D England [iNglan] a'i`dilan =3D Ireland [ajrilan] tyapa'n =3D Japan [tSjapan] ispa'n =3D Spain [ispan] pidya^nsa =3D France [firjansa] etc., Wasagga' wami^dikayasa =3D English (language America-adj.) OR Wasagga' sukkyu^maniq =3D English (language human-pl-gen) Wasagga' watyapa'nya`sa =3D Japanese (language Japan-gen) etc. --=20 "God is dead" -- Nietzsche "Nietzsche is dead" -- God ICQ #: 18656696 AOL screen-name: NikTailor
