    You're welcome.

    Some of the tricky ones are the false cognates, though. Like in French librairie is bookstore, and la bibliotheque is library. Medecin is doctor, so it's sort of a cognate, but not quite.

    Whee!

    Yup. BAnahn.

    I like this thread
    Her head hung down
    Gazed at earth, finally keen,
    As the rabbit at the stoat,
    Till the earth was sky,
    Sky that was green,
    And brown clouds passed
    Like chestnut leaves along the ground.
