postfix notation, yeah. :)

i don't see any relevant difference. but this could be mo' my english.

well, in russian, in french and in italian you say so...

but who's anybody anyway? :)

this ought to be some kind of slang. the second /wI'/ is a "my" like 
in "my dear". i know that it wouldn't be correct, so I used the *s.

>/ghom/ isn't a suffix.  I'm not sure what you're trying for.

oops, my fault.

i wanted to say "batlhHa'ghach". ok... how do you express your 
disapproving against something that is absolutely against all your 
rules and values you have?

ok, sorry. this shouldn't happen again.
