Is that a Japanese word? nope, it's a sequence of words in my conlang Finvaran, meaning, roughly, "language woman": togo-na kamane language-adj person.fem (the suffix na makes a noun into a nominal adjective.) I thought I'd said so in my first post under this name, but either you missed or it something wacky happened in the sending. [my former email address was email@example.com... I moved all my linguistics stuff to this address due to the volume on the list.] speaking of list volume... AOL mailboxes have a fairly reasonable 1000 message storage limit. Between the 4th and 15th, when I didn't happen to check this screenname's email, I received 1000 emails, and therefore missed basically all the messages between sometime on the 15th and sometime early this morning. Now, since I can only assume such ungodly amounts of mail are going to continue to fly about, I have a few questions: 1) how can I catch up on the messages I missed? If on egroups, what's the group name there? 2) what command do I send to listserv to get daily (hourly? the timing doesn't matter much, though weekly is too far apart) digests? IS there one? luckily, I got a few mails just now after reading some, so I know I wasn't bouncing long enough to get zapped for it. thanks!
