Hey John and Listeros,

   Due to my bad bookkeeping, I can't find the statement about one of the "-ti"
verbers, the 'have' one, not the 'be, become' one.  Nevertheless, even in this
vacuum, I wanted to present a reminder that the intransitive "-ti" occurs not
infrequently without the transitivizing causative suffix "-a".

   If the list contains errors, I would appreciate having it pointed out.
