A question for the grammar specialists among us, though…

We established a while back that a noun can only be described attributively by 2 adjectives (on either side), right?

Does this count for participles as well?
Because now we have trr asawnung lefpom, which is 2 adjectives in a row referring back to the same noun…

Ideas? or explanations? :D

Note, too, that Frommer probably used the early randomly-generated word, tsaleioae, for "respect." I hope that's not a säfpìl amek.

Ohh, I didn't notice that, what a shame. Personally I treat is as a mistake. This needs explanation from Paul.

Trr asawnung {livu} lefpom.

The lefpom is a predicate.
