    I just want to say that I have been admiring Rokbeigalmki for as long as
I have noticed it.
    I really "grok" to the way Steg creates multiple or multilevel
meanings/"shadings" in lexical items - words or otherwise. <esp'ly - to me at
least -  intriguing and inspiring examples quoted/re-posted below>

I find _aole_ sorta similar to my conlang's _.linga-.lilaa_ 'tongue(phallic)-[divine]play' or "language-creation" I am trying to do somewhat similar "motivated root-creations" and _ex-nihilo_ root-creations for my conlang _ .ur-ae'u'm_ <- ae is suppose to be digraph "ash," 'u' is suppose to be umlaut u . /3:` @Um/

again, wonderfully inspirational to see someone "making things new" - & making the familiar strange :)
