Exploring the dictionary with the search engine (which is operational
since today morning ...) I discovered two occurences of an unexplained
abbreviation which refers to a language in which "silvir" means
"silver" and "ses" means "six". The name of the language is
abbreviated as "Kimr."
Any ideas what the abbreviation is supposed to mean?
The question is obviously off of the topic of the list but my
curiosity is so strong that I was unable to resist...
