I also wondered whether by "submit" Clement meant "post" or "resign, 
i.e. unsubscribe" (meaning associated with /soumettre /). Relying on 
plausible shared meanings ("false friends") or online translation can be 
difficult. It's especially hard to know what another language uses for 
computer jargon, as I have found out when trying to get help at internet 
shops in other countries. Not to mention "Where is the @?" on a 
non-English keyboard. Or asking a staff person questions in a shared 
third language neither of us knows too well.

I haven't even tried to find out where the @ is on the Georgian 
keyboard, but I'm reliably assured that they use the Cyrillic alphabet 
rather than their wonderful indigenous one, so I don't have to learn the 
latter to read shop signs. Off to see the alpine bulbs in May ... but 
shamelessly neglecting this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to study a 
North Caucasian language. Still, it will be good to hear it, just as 
it's good to step out onto a faraway hillside and be surrounded by the 
fragrance of the place.
