Subject: dhivehi program
I am a computer science student in Australia. I am doing a project on
Maldivien's Language. Does anyone know of any program that will teach
you how to speak Dhivehi (multimedia or text) or dictionary that helps
to translate English to Dhivehi.

URGENT !!!

Thanks ...

Subject: Yiddish Sayings
Do you know of any sources on the InterNet where I can get Yiddish Sayings
... such as the curse "May you grow like an onion with your head in the
ground and your feet in the air" or other Yiddish curses?
Thank you,

Message 3: possession and articles

Subject: possession and articles

Can anybody tell me if there is a language out there which...

-has articles and possession as word-level items, not suffixes
and 
-has the order Noun-Poss, but Art-Noun, or vice versa?

(in other words, where possession doesn't pattern with articles)

thanks
