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).
