This must refer to Nakita Kash, pornstar: iye yukatro kinjiti onam ri yuno leroç amaraç 3s/fem become-FUT slave-2/poss sexual LOC all days ages Googling for Kash turned up 177,000 hits, of which (in the first 100) two refer to my language. It seems to be a popular name in the rock-n-roll world; and a fairly common surname...among others. _Gwr_ turns up 103,000 hits; mostly to do with the Great Western Railway; a radio station in Bristol; 2 refs to my language, et al. GWR is the Ethnologue code for Gwere (Africa).
