  2. "Comments: Hello! Just wanted to let you know I really enjoyed your page and stories, and will be coming back to read more! :) Also, don't know if you know, but the word "Kardasi" is not canon. Rather, a person named Esther on aol, who is a linguist by trade, has constructed a Cardassian language of her own, used by fans, by the name Kardasi. She always is happy to see her words used, but appreciates having an acknowledgement of her work, as it took her a long time to construct the language and grammar. In addition, if you are interested in learning more of the language, she has a page up and I'd be happy to send you the URL either to look at or link to. I mentioned how good your page was to her and sent her the link, so she'll probably drop by too. Take care! :) Carolyn Sunday January 17th 1999 11:36:51" -- Kardasi Caresses (January 17, 1999)
