    I don't know why, but sometimes Thunderbird uses the right From and
    Reply-to, and sometimes it doesn't, and I forget to check occassionally.


    attached mail follows:

    Correction: phonologically sister of damma has no direct semantics. It
    is a vowel lengthener that applies only to a preceding damma, which is
    always implicit if not written explicitly. So you can construe it to
    mean long /uu/ directly; but that is not how Arabic grammar has
    traditionally viewed it.
