Option a.:  Lieven’s post to this list on Nov. 7, 2017.

Since he regularly speaks with Marc Okrand, Lieven’s own posts are relevant even when he’s remembering a past conversation.  FYI:  a post from Okrand to Lieven (which Lieven simply forwards to this list) would be annotated “MO > Lieven” or sometimes “Lieven < MO”.

These are:

a. an explanation written by lieven
b. an explanation written by 'oqranD and then forwarded by lieven
c. an explanation spoken by 'oqranD and then written by lieven

Which option is correct ?
