Ray-- apologies for this public reply, I don't seem to have your email addr.

Comments on Outidic--
I've read the website (fascinating by the way, and I look forward to the
 rest), and my clerk's mentality has uncovered the following typos 
etc.....


§1, ?1.2-Schleyer.English as __ became..    "it"
omitted?
§2.3, next ot last ?-- .but he considered __ odd.  "it" omitted?
§3.2, 5th ?, 2nd sentence-Also, as he appears not __ have
appreciated.  "to" omitted?
§3.3.1, end-...discussedby Dr.Outis...  space between
§3.3.2, last ?, first line--  .. he should ha_e rejected.   "v"omitted
§3.4, ?2 middle-"...noticing that manny of his."   
typo, and ": ...countrymen pronounced changed it to."    ((
something garbled there))
§4, 2nd line-...system was different. his discussion.    shd. be cap.
(general comment re stress: isn't
final stress pretty odd for a Greek-derived language?)
§5.5, first bullet point: ".followed by /r/ or /r/." surely /l/ intended?
§5.5, last line of fn.2, the Greek exs. appear to be "σψηκ,
σφηκός" is that initial "sigma" correct? since Outidic spek is
said to have metathesized the psi.

That's it for now.  I know how boring it is to correct typos.....my sympathies.

OOPS!! But I find only _zof_, which has now been changed to
_zop_.

Nope! It's the error of someone who hadn't worked on a
project for a while and came back to it, wanting to finish
it quickly and thus was careless    :(

Thanks for pointing it out the error so promptly.
