    ::impressed with CG's lingua-manglin' Maggel --- head-spinnin' with its
utter strangeness::  Talk about a "mutant" English!!!!

>Pff... remind me never to begin such a thing again!! :))

    Why not??? Besides I highly doubt you can resist, hehe...

    LMAO... if they descended directly from Pict-ish like people and were
never really "civilized" totally, I would imagine they would have some
strange aesthetics.

>but I can assure you that it looks better in the Maggel alphabet ;))) ).

    Naturally. Like the Maggel ironwork and jewelry, very
ornate-but-naturalistic in comparision to any Roman alphabet language ;)

poet is most poetic when inventing languages. Hence the concept of the poet
