	I guess, as a non native speaker of the english language, I
 can help them along in hindi.


	For other languages, us non native speakers either adapt,
 learn enough english, or we ask questions about things that confuse
 us. Even the current GR is socuched in language one would not
 normally hear on the street. I have included in the RFD all that I
 consder belongs on the rfd, and the draft ballot is likely to be
 close to what was sent to d-d-a.

	If that is not enough, I am not clairvoyant. Unless people
 tell me *BEFORE* the fact, I can do little.
