I don't think so! What dimension is long? I don't think any is. But length is
a proper dimension. So, I suggest {la djan. barda le ka clani}.

I think not. All truth values are person-specific.

Ideas of the same person can be compared.

:) :) Yes, but the scales are person-specific, I think... That makes
arguing about them pretty foolish.
