Hello all.

I'm afraid that I'll be going no-mail for the next few weeks as
my family and I will be visiting Northern France in part to see
the tiny town of Ver-sur-mer in Normandy whence my remote ancestors
left around a thousand years ago.  ("Ver" is cognate to "Wier",
and all the Wiers of Scotland are said to have left from there after
the Conquest and travelled to Scotland via England.) If anyone wants
to email me, I just might have access to some internet rightpondianlike,
but I'll be busy.  When I get back, I'd like to post some musings I've
entertained about an animacy hierarchy and C'ali wordorder.
