Oops--I must change that. I am 16 now.

Yes, it is. I'm working on a jitihk zohse'n-don course, and as I go along I'm seeing all sorts of things I need to add, so the course will probably be much more complete than the overview when it's finished.

Transitive SOV with intranstive SSV.

Partly because it lets one equate to things easily without devoting a whole sentence to the task (which would be difficult anyway, since I think there's not going to be a copula).

It will probably get a bit more detailed as I run into things that I can't translate. :)

Well, literate. I don't know about wise. But anyway, they're a devolved remnant of some sort of more advanced civilization, so they have an excuse. :)

True; although I am told mine is terribly impersonal. But they say the same thing about Poe, so I don't mind. :)

Oh dear...I'm quite sorry. I don't know why that would happen, unless Geocities is acting up.
