choquvmoH. I hoped people would enjoy it and get a lot from it, 
though I didn't want to trumpet it as signficant if nobody else 
thought so.

Mostly, I tried to elicit as much detail as possible while 
giving him the space to only offer as much as he wanted. In the 
process, I got more than a couple answers that contradicted what 
I hoped the answer would be, but in the process of adjusting to 
his answers, I'm enjoying this more confident understanding of 
the way things work. The range of expression is improved for me.

It is an incremental improvement. I particularly enjoyed the 
part about verbs of speech. It makes sense to me.

The stuff about {jaH} and such required some adjustment on my 
part, but I'm fully willing to make that adjustment. Mostly, I 
want us to speak one language. The more we have to guess, the 
less we do that.
