Exactly! A gold star for you....... Additional info: "prevli" refers only the their own language(s); others are called _pervil_ pervil kaftu 'lang. of Kavatu (a variety of Kash)' pervil kolunda '... of Holunda' etc. pervilt uSäta Kash languages in general-- uSänta 'others, different' is what they call the Kash. Of course.
