(Or are they called subordinate? You could form a compound stative verb: The man who bighappyreds walked down the street. Talarian does this (the compounding more than the stative verbing); though one of the basic things about T words is their POS interchangeability (a noun can be verbed by simply adding verbal morphology and vice versa). So it would be possible to make the adjectival string into a verb. I would doubt that this would sound 'normal' to a T speaker though. It might be an interesting feature for philosophers and poets to take advantage of. So we'd have: Walked the man of bighappyredness the street down; and Bighappyreds the man who walked the street down. > That /ho/ is a continuation particle letting you know the > main clause is starting up again. A curious feature! Can you explain it a little more? Padraic. -- Gwerez dah, chee gwaz vaz, ha leal.
