Thanks for that ! Though I am no linguist (and sometimes fail to understand everything :D), I find this really interesting.
Indeed, it is very hard to go for instance from a Basque conception of the sentence back to the French or Spanish one :shock: You really have to think differently (when using relative clauses, you have to think of th relative first and then the antecedent...).
