Hi!

I need a word for page, like "the eleventh page of this thread", but as there is no word, I'd like to hear your opinions on how to say it...

I'd use rìk or peytsì. It's possible I'm being influenced by Swedish when I suggest rìk, as the word for 'leaf' can also mean 'page' here.

We learn from our mistakes only if we are made aware of them.
If I make a mistake, please bring it to my attention for karma.

I expect pukvi - "a part of book", but Pawl said that suffix -vi is not productive, so we need a confirmation.

I asked Paul offhandedly about pukvi in person, and he vetod it.  Though I didn't offer any sort of argument for it at the time, and now I have one.

I'd go for *peytsì because puk is a loan word as well...

In Russian too. ;)

In my opinion, rìk is the best choice.

Suggest it as a new word, and give a good justification then.
