Re: Okrand speaks: What time is it?

: Don't forget that we get a new explanation (a newly extended 
: definition) of {per}. I can see I'll be working on my 
: dictionaries tonight.
: charghwI' 'utlh

	rep yIper! 
	Ascertain the hour! Specify the hour! 

And of course everyone has noticed that in finally providing an answer to the nagging question:  How do you ask "What time is it?", Okrand chose to use the existing verb {per} "label" - which is {rep} "hour" backwards!
