A ready sale, perhaps, but I wouldn't be surprised if it went unread a
great deal of the time. Occitan has undergone a lot of oppression in
France: see <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vergonha> for details.
I bought and read a graphic novel adaptation of _Kidnapped_ in Scots and
enjoyed it, but I've been reading Scots and semi-Scots since my youth.
I can't speak it or write it.
weirdo: When is R7RS coming out?

stick a toothpick in it, the toothpick comes out dry.
