Editor for this issue: Dan Parker
We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.
In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.
To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

I read in an article on reflexives that the Somali word for bone (laf) can
be used as a reflexive (laft-). But Somali grammars I found do not mention
this. Instead they only discuss reflexive ''is''. Can someone please tell
me if the word laft- is indeed used?
