Hi, In my current project, āseka`eni, I need to come up with a way to express thanks. I'm interested in what you all have done in your own languages, or any natlangs you know of. I am particularly interested in unusual semantic content, but whatever you can contribute is appreciated. I make no guarantee that I won't copy something that comes in reply to this. :-) I will post the āseka`eni version and give due credit to the inspiration in a later post. Thanks! -------- James W.
