Notes: This was a word I coined because I couldn’t fathom how a word for “to sew” could be basic. It didn’t seem basic in Kamakawi: It seemed like something that would be the result of reduplication. And, in fact, it’s a reduplication of this word. So look out for the word “to sew” some time in the future!
