What is it then?!!! <hungry look> :)) To my defence, I use different construction to get over it: > to > say "I have a son", one must say > Lor sate faani. > "Exists boy my." > or "There is a boy that's mine." > I had thought this was pretty original, > I would have thought so, but my little booklet about the structure of languages says that languages like Quechua and Aymara use a similar construction :)) .
