I shudder to the marrow at the notion :)
You know, one of the oddest notions I ever had (here for your amusement, since
it's 1:30 AM my time, and I'm almost hallucinating :) was the general distaste
the Pride's crew had to knnn singing, and the question: What would a compact
species (esp the Hani) make of, say, opera? ;() Pavarotti singing "O Solo Mio,"
the Comandatore scene from "Don Giovanni?" ;)
Also, i wondered if Tully would've fared any better if he had some sort of
hand-to-hand training, or some sort of weapons training... I definitely got
the impression that, as he said, he IS just a nobody, a Joe Spacer of sorts...
Anyhow, back to Jo's linguistic program... Jo, what sort of algorithm did you
use to render that? It was fairly believable, I thought! The structure seems
consistent (to my early-morning cursory study) with what I remember of the text
... Though I have one complaint... ;) --- The all-important WORD wasn't there,
even once, in the kifish!
