wow, thanks!  i always used to think that Rokbeigalmki was pretty boring;
then Sally made me re-do the glossary i sent her during the last
translation relay, since the compounds, causative forms, etc. weren't
nearly as boringly transparent as i had thought they were.

 i just like it because of the contrast between 'weird' and 'normal' and
the question of how something can be 'weird' and 'normal' at the same
