En réponse à Robert B Wilson <[log in to unmask]>: > > what the kontoko words _bekil_ 'Maggel' and _kobnekitto_ 'Maggelity'? I'm extremely sorry!!!! I had forgotten about those two :((( . But then, you must admit that they don't look much like the original forms, so it may explain why I overlooked them :(( . Sorry again... > i've used _kobnekitto_ in two messages to this list. i recently made > kinsi rorotan equivalents of these words: > mokel = Maggel > mokelid = Maggelity > Those are closer indeed :)) . In any case, I'm extremely flattered that the name of a language of mine finds its way in other people's languages :) . I'll try to return the favour as well as I can :) . > now i have a new etymology for _kobnekitto_: > kobnekitto = kon- [< Old Kontoko _gom_ 'state of being X'] + bekil [< > Maggel] + itto [< Old Kontoko _iddo_ 'beside'] > Nice.
