It's always great to receive new info from maltz..

Unfortunately though, I'm afraid that this piece of Ca'Non, solves one
problem (the problem of "how to say.."), by creating another.

If we talk on the phone, and I say to you {DaH paq mu'mey vIjatlh},
then according to the newly revealed Ca'Non, the *only* way this is
understood is, that I'm holding the book reading from the inside.

But what if I'm not actually reading from the inside, but I've
memorized the passage in question ?

Now, I know what will happen..

Someone will say: "you can't actually be remembering the exact words of a book".

But, as americans say, "speak for yourself".

I've taken exams, where because my life depended on the outcome, I had
memorized the exact words, down to the letter.
