Re: Teach Yourself Kamakawi

Your lessons were entertaining to read. :)  I enjoyed it.

I just had to go look up what "kamakawi" would mean in ea-luna (my "main"
language project) and it turned out, against all odds, that "kama" and
"kawi" haven't had meaning assigned to them yet. If I divide it up as
ka-maka-wi, I see that "ka" doesn't have an assigned meaning either, but
"maka-wi" means "news meanings" -- presumably a word that would have
something to do with interpreting news. (I know it is silly, but when I see
words that fit into ea-luna, I am always curious about what they mean.)
