I'm thinking the rule in German turns /x/ to /C/ around front vowels (or is
it only after them?).
[I have had to correct the grammar of this sentence five times so far.]
>> "chik" /Cik/ - to follow
>> (chyhs-) /Cy:s/ - follow (past tense stem)
>> "Chussa" /Cys:A/ - side (of the body)
><admiring look> "Chussa"--side of the body. What a neat word!
