Koreans, they couldn't have changed everything, just as the Normans
couldn't in England.

wasn't aware that there were that many SOV languages kicking around.
Or is it classified based on characteristics other than grammar.

thinking about though is that the Japanese are in no way, no how
related to Koreans ;) They came through China!!! not Korea. This is
currently a discredited theory except for a few extreme cases of Nihonron.
Very interesting material, thank you.

I occasionally get the early messages out of order as well; however,
I can't imagine that there is a problem with Yahoo. Else, how did the
others receive the message to reply to? I assume that either A) the
messages are slow enough to deliver to some mail servers that others
reply back to the original and that mail goes through faster than the
original, or B) the time stamp for several of the users are not
configured correctly, and the e-mail program sorts by date. Thus, the
original will flag at the right time, but the reply is incorrectly set
as before the original, or the original is incorrectly set to a future
time, thus letting replies sort before it.
Let me know if anyone else has any more insight on this.

PS: Is anyone else out there getting messages out of order from Yahoo!?
I have missed the originals on several threads so far, and I need to see
if it is Yahoo! or my e-mail host.
