Uatakassi LOOKS like it doesn't follow that trend, until you realize that ua- is simply a gender prefix (animates other than animals; e.g., fire, language, social institutions, emotions, some abstractions, some plants, insects for some speakers, etc.), so that the root is actually Takassi. Eek! It's actually a closet T-conlang! :-) -- "There's no such thing as 'cool'.
