I am currently looking for 2 TrueType fonts to use with MS Windows. Does anyone
have a lead?

They are:

1) font for EVEGDBE language - Togo

2) font for EFON language - Benin

and while I am at it; I'm also looking for a font called Arial Alternative

Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to offer.

Query:

 In Japanese, the phrase is "roku kon go you"; in
Mandarin, it is "liu gen wu yong". The references I have
traslate both of these phrases as something akin to "six
roots/foundations, five uses". Apparently, this has
connection to Buddhist philosophy.
 Could those familiar with Japanese and/or Mandarin
comment on the phrase(s) and translation? Also, if there
are those amongst you who are familiar with this aspect of
Buddhism, I would greatly appreciate elucidation upon it.

I have been working on a paper about Vennemann's theory of natural
serialization and am currently working on applying it to the current
status of languages.
I have in mind to compile a list of all European languages, stating
which basic word order they have and how consistent they are.
Is there already such a list anywhere, and if where; and if not,
where could I retrieve this data from?
Would it be "fairer" to Vennemann if I didn't limit myself to
European languages?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thank you,
Mic
