Ngah-yamarrk-dih, I've got no teeth. Question about walu-no, answer on wolu-no, cooked. Then karru-no, with developments about the rules to be observed when a son or brother has his first initiation. Mohmoh-warrung? Mahmun? QB translates karru-no as "leg", for "stages". Also karru-wan as follow rules. Dakkayh-no is not identified. Modjdjanj-no is identified by MK, who associates it with funeral (and lorrkkon) ceremonies. Koldja translated as wirridjih. No specific translation for rul and lou. Yurrkkuyurrkku, swapswap. Ralh-ngong for "stuff" (indetermined). Construction kah-no not recognised. Wunjmang (hit by sorcery). Humbag: korong-wan (?). Djong-no as big burning log. Example with djongmun. ABout waral-no, how the spirits are called, during funerals, or when going on the land. Wardak-mu (maybe speaking with this specific prosody?), kokkok-mu (call the spirits). Good example of appropriate prosody. Eg. of how waral-no can come back and scare people. MK tells the story of how she took scientists on her land and called to the spirit for permission to show the paintings to Munanga. Indication that Munanga can be derogatory. The story is also told in the "Spirits in Stone" trailer. MK explains that kidjdjan are related to ceremony. Her spontaneous translation is boswan, she accepts manidja. Kurhnan. Eg. of munu used with non intellectual action.
