I agree. Shall I start adding a disclaimer to all of my messages stating that
the translation methods I offer do not work in every situation? That's how
languages are. Certain things like "table" and "stone" can have a direct one
to one translation. But many concepts can't be handled that way. When I said
I saw -taH used as "still" I wasn't saying it works that way every time. We
have to remember to translate the -whole- idea, not the individual words.
