When I translated from Kamakawi in a previous relay (was it #15?) one of the most interesting aspects was the syntax, particularly the use of the subject status markers. And the phonology, while not unusual enough to be a source of major interest, makes it a very pleasant language to work with. I'd be happy to work with Kamakawi in this inverse relay - or with any of at least five or six of the languages I've heard mentioned as possible or probably being used. -- Jim Henry
