Re: a better translation for the "revenge" proverb



Erich Schneider says:
: 
: 
: For "revenge is a dish best served cold":
: 
: bortaS jabnISlu'chugh, nay' bIrjaj.
: 
: I assume I have done "-jaj inversion" correctly here?
Sorry if someone else has already said this (I'm wading through several days'
worth of old mail), but >-jaj< inversion is far from conclusively proved in my
book. I'd stick with >birjaj nay'<.
