When I wrote "(qurgh, 11/10/2015)" it meant that qurgh posted the following statement to this list on November 10, 2015.  Whether qurgh's statement is true or not - i.e. which qepHom he was referring to - I have no way of knowing.  If I mis-quote someone or confuse the source, I always appreciate corrections. 

I copy-and-paste all sorts into my notes, especially any comments by or conversations with Okrand.  You never know when something might become relevant.  Or not.  Sometimes it's like interpreting the oracle at Delphi, or should I say  the lava caves under the Boreth monastery?
