Ah, I'm forgetting that scholarliness does not equate to success or
genius, neither of which I claim, but serious and consistand application,
that I'm proud of. When I was studying Henryson in a Medieval English
paper my class was told about one British woman who has made herself an
independant expert on this Scottish poet simply because she has the
ability and the resources to do so. That's a role model to aspire to.

I will think about this. There is also the Ambrosian Rite which is/was
used in Milan. I don't know if it still is. The Uniate churches (Eastern
Churches in communion with Rome) continue to preserve their own practices.
In some cases Uniate parishes in America have left the Catholic church and
joined Orthodox churches when the local hierarchy put pressure on the
differences of practice, especially priestly celebacy which is not
enforced in Orthodox and Uniate churches (including Cambriese Uniates).

The Greek is SOLON, I know about Net English, and where 'Humour not
marked' comes from, but I'm still trying to work out the origin of the
middle two lines.
On another issue, I am considering restoring a negative construction _rhen
di_ to Brithenig, based on the Welsh preposition "mo", when a negative
verb is followed by an object. I dropped it out of the language to avoid
confusion with the Celtic genitive, and the I could never figure out if it
should be used with predicates as well as object nouns. Your thoughts?
