    Guys, this one is not arguable: linguistically speaking, all languages are worth the same and all dialects of a language are worth the same. Not because I say so but because it's a truism in linguistics. So let's move on, please... We don't need to reinvent the wheel or start feuds. By the way, Steve mentioned this truism in his post, and his original "bastard" comment was in obvious self-jest. I don't think I've ever spoken of a self-jest, but I attribute it to the Raravian dialect. I hope some fool doesn't "quote the Internet" on this!
