OK, below assumes God's father is a thing without a name.

(new)
(createWRR god parent (it))

Below script creates a word that is symbolized by two different strings:

(new)
(create word instance (it))
(create (it) symbolizedBy 'employe)
(create (it) symbolizedBy 'employee)

I wanted to show that (it) can also be symbolizedBy chinese characters, but I don't have them installed on my PC. Received on Wed Jul 26 2006 - 13:03:24 CDT
