(G)Jarrda update

The name of the language formerly known as Jarrda is now spelled "Gjarrda".
It's pretty much the same language, but there have been some changes in
vocabulary which mainly affect the names of animals and the months and
years of the calendar. The newly updated Gjarrda pages are at:

I've kept the old pages around (at in
case I need them to correct errors in the revised pages, but I eventually
intend to remove them and replace them with links to the new pages.

I changed a number of the words in the Gjarrda calendar because the changes
in the animal names messed up my neat scheme of abbreviating dates by using
the first letter of the month and year. The current month that we're in,
for instance, has changed from the Month of the Squirrel to the Month of
the Lemur (unfortunately, the new word for "squirrel" conflicted with the
word for "lizard", since both begin with "z").
