The Kash are also telepaths, but without extraordinary native ability or special training by their off-planet Unity allies, it only works face to face, or at best within a large roomful of people. hañuçit -- to "speak" telepathically (hañu soul/mind plus çit < çindi 'speak') hañuços -- to "hear" (analogical ços for *sos < sosir 'hear')
