It seems to me that 'neffer' and 'grawnt' are 'never' and 'grunt'. "You will 
never grunt over me" again is Jane Doe denying the President sex, I assumed. 
What 'Groose' is supposed to be I dont know. "Gross", perhaps?

Also, with regards to the Short Sun, I was wondering if anyone thought that 
the inhumi's method of breeding had any bearing on the secret (or even the 
dubious Horn or Silk as inhumi option). Jahlee or Fava, I can't remember 
which, claims that the inhumi make love exactly as a man or woman would do, 
before moving on to the more technical, amphibious process. I'm sure that 
this has some bearing on the plot, although I haven't really managed to work 
out what.

   On a personal note I haven't contributed to this list before, but have
been lurking for ages. Hello everybody.
