Maltz has revealed some words which I don't want to keep secret from you 
any longer. I'm sending them in individual messages to keep the subject 
line separated.

---begin quote------------

Perhaps the verb {patlh} "be ranked, have a status, be graded" will 
work.  The form {patlhmoH} would mean "rank, assign status, sort" and 
also "compare."  When used with the "compare" meaning, of course, the 
object of the verb is always plural.  The implication that if two (or 
more) things are ranked or sorted, they're ranked in comparison to one 
another.
