(I mean, I sorta can see it, but even the filename doesn't help with how it's defined...)

OOH! OOH! I can translate!

"It's happy when you roll over in bed, but when you eat another man you get constipation"

That is so deep, KT!

You're both sounding like Borat, which I saw today for the first time.

Aaaahhhhh!

I can't find enough Elephant's Memory stuff online to make out the icon - did you actually order his CD-rom?

Nope. I don't think his CD-ROM is even available anymore. I even tried emailing him personally at two different addresses. One bounced, and I never heard back from the other.

But if you examine the directory that image is in, and its parent directory, you'll see plenty of materials that I've been putting together, and which I plan to make a webpage for soon. This is kind of a sneak preview. :}

Wow, that's fantastic. I'm very impressed, at your finding the data, your puzzling out his sentences, and your expansion of the language. Let me know when you have your webpage up and I'll link to it.

I will! Actually, do you read conlangs? I plan to post about it there.

Oh, and I even found and fixed a mistake or two in the original sample sentences. I am thinking of her every day had the "is" symbol (circle with two gaps) instead of the "all" symbol (unbroken circle). That would have meant something like "I am thinking of her at a time which is days." The corrected version makes much more sense, doesn't it?

I might add that the link says "everyday" instead of "every day." You're thinking of her commonplace? (Coca Cola has committed a similar grievance.)

Erf, yes, argh. Even Elvis Costello has committed that error, in his (admittedly catchy) song "Everyday I write the book". Thanks for catching that...

Naturally I read conlangs - I'll keep an eye out for it!
Yes, your version makes more sense.

Oh yeah! I love that song! It goes, "Happy baby, sunrise, we share the same tongue, I have an x in my hair."
