WHAT?! Now I am really confused and wished I'd never bothered to read this
thread. What does a Fossism and a thingie have in common? And pardon my
ignorance (I really haven't followed all that closely) but what
anthropological sub-division does this jargon spring from? I like the "reify"
paralel (sp?), that word always cracked me up in grad-school. If you can
reify, can you ify? :)
