    Sorry to hear that, Alfar, but glad to see you back!!!

    I need to download your placename generator again as I have now upgraded to Windows 7, I still have in mind a saxon place name lexicon which is on my 'to do' list.

    best

    translate each world to as many languages as possible (google translator), put google to pronounce it once. try pronouncing after it. no matter how far you got from the real sound, try spelling it in a way that, in your language, it sounds similar to what you pronounced. you now have a new word for forest/mountain/hill. thats prettu much how french/english/spanish/portuguese and lots of languages and dialets around europe (wouldn't be surprised if around the world) were formed.
