Thanks, that's a nice piece of linguistic trivia.

Have you also heard of the opera by Charles F. Hockett, "The Loves of Dona
Rosita", and its rather special twist?

Sharing is caring, if you stumble across something you think I might find
interesting then send it my way. I do the same.

Please forgive me for any mistakes of orthography (especially Swedish and
French diacritics), I try to answer as fast as possible and sometimes that
results in less than optimal key board output.
