I agree. Even if Arabic fails to distinguish the two - not likely;
this isn't a trivial, gnome-sane distinction that a martial people
wouldn't bother to make; but, youneverknow - anyone writing in English
ought to distinguish them, regardless.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint
to come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
