Notes

  • I've tried to mark all my made-up examples this time. Let me know if you think I missed one.
  • I have edited some in-the-wild examples for correctness.
  • "xructciof" may or may not be morphologically correct. Come back when the Morphology section is done.

Impact

Beyond clarifying how brain-numbingly useless some of the BAI are, none taht I'm aware of.
