My system (as if in disgust) doesn't
want to tag a reply to your last
post. I understand neither the
import, purport nor the relevance of
your 'cutting' remark, but if I can
move swiftly on to your more
civilised errors:
1) a Hispanic contributor in fact
drew our attention to the
Celtiberian 'abade,' also, within
the recent thread.
2) AIUI, the Germanic 'runes' are
also thought to be derived from the
Etruscan alphabet.
