Very nice page, a bit long to load though but maybe t'was my computer. i would
like some more details re. the subclause:
i would understand /John nik useshunk in tereu euko ubichuvi tivosh/ as meaning
/[the fact] that [John wrote a book] is a bestseller/ because euko follows the
verb /tereu/ and would refer to it. but i guess that euko actually refers back
to the object of /tereu/, i.e., /useshunk/ within the preceding clause. in a
japanese way that would have been /John nik in tereu useshunk ubichuvi tivosh/.
so is euko referring back to the object of a preceding subclause or to the
subclause itself? and how would you say "John who writes the book is a great
author" ?

offtopic: i can't quote with > sign because to write reply posts i cut a message
from the daily digest and paste it on my mail. the daily digest solves the pb
with the great number of posts on this list.
