    I'll give you a tip, too. There are two more vowels in this word. Letter O and letter I are there already, and you know that letter A is not there. The remaining vowels shouldn't be very hard to...

    Well, Shakespeare was not a historian. It wasn't at all his priority. Macbeth, for example, didn't kill Duncan in his sleep. He killed him, but on the field of battle. Dick III may have been as...

    Yes, articles can be quite idiomatic. I would prefer to have none as with Latin. But I suppose they make languages richer in their own way--less spare in any case.

    There once was a horse and a groom

    Absolutely brilliant, Tony. Not only the colors but the images--a forking road above, a winding road below, and distant mountains. One of your best.
