Uatakassí has _sunaplafubláfu_, derived from the verb _plafubláfu_ "to
speak nonsense, to mutter, to be incomprehensible". Sunaplafubláfu thus
means "One who speaks unintelligibly". Of course, with the Kassí
worldview, that's pretty much synonymous with "barbarian". :-) But, a
foreigner who actually spoke good Uatakassí would probably not be called
"No just cause can be advanced by terror"
