      That's why we need you to keep contributing feedback. And those of you on the
      list who know any of the Germanic languages, please don't lurk and scoff at
      naive errors on my part, and don't write off the effort. The project depends
      on people making contributions. : )

        German also has "t�chtig" corresponding to "dyktig/dygtig". So
        something like "duktig" might be a candidate.

        > Accurate Genau Nauwgezet Noggrann Akkurat N�yaktig

        Most languages also have precise/pr�cis/pr�zis.

        > Ancient Altmodisch Oud Gammaldags For�ldet Eldgammel

        "Altmodisch" is "old-fashioned" ("Mode" is "fashion"). "For�ldet" is
        "out-dated". I'm not sure whether there should be a word
        corresponding to "ancient"...

        > Angry Zornig; B�se Kwaad Vred Vred Sint Beis

        Why not use the English one: "angrig"?
