I finally found free dialup internet with a local access number. I just wish I had a better modem than this old 14.4k... I now use Juno, so my new e-mail address is [log in to unmask] and my homepage is at the bottom of this post in the signature. And I started a new page on Tech, and this time, no more change in script; I've settled on Ge'ez for good. Not much data except for a partial listing of the characters used in the language. The page requires three TrueType fonts called GF Zemen; an offsite link is given to install the fonts. (A very good set of freeware fonts, and Ge'ez has hundreds of glyphs; the designers deserve great accolades for their work.) http://homestead.juno.com/dawier/tech.html You'll have to click the Back button on your browser to escape that page; I still don't have all my links and pages connected too well. And check back soon, as I will have a list of basic word roots, both monosyllabic particles and di- and trisyllabic lexical items. (A neat feature of this language is that each root does not have any function as is, but needs to be "prepared", using the many inflectional forms, for the word's grammatical and syntactical role as noun, verb, adjective etc. If I can ever get something done, this is going to be a fun experiment. ( had been caught up on phonology and script so long I never considered grammar, but now I have some ideas to truly make this language infamously complex. I better go, I'm about to starve to death and a big juicy burger is calling me from down the street. I'll reply to some of y'all's posts later, especially YHL's (should I call you Yoon or Lee?).
