New vocab.

A productive day on the vocab. front.  On the way to the laundromat, I
discovered colloq. Kash words for their various coins:

All are blends of kroki 'hundredths'
0.50 truni (50 cents) kronjo (+kunjo 'divide; half')
0.25 tr.  kroka (+ ha '4')
0.10 tr.  kropot (+ fola '10's)
(0.0l pennies, yet to come..., probably the word for zinc, from which they
are made)

And during the cocktail hour, came up with these favorites-- all are very
old, all Gwr creations, out of the fashionable (or not) bars and restaurants
of pre-Destruction Bau Da, which some think of as the Good Old Days:

andayi (named for Ang Lai, the old capital)
ñakici ('little car')
