149

I’ll concentrate on parallel texts for a while. I’m pulled to return to the basic method used by Heinrich Schliemann. And so I fooled around a little with Polish.

I chose to start small. In English, ‘I’ and ‘a’ are the only one-letter words. In Polish there are at least 6: w, i, z, a, o and u. Cute. And from the first page or two of the 7th chapter of HP1, I find a total of 22 two-letter words. (If I listed them I’d go over my 100-word limit.)


With Polish, small words are a fun place to start.
