Funny how these words are still use. I agree. There should be some time of course that taino deccendant can go and learn the missing words to fill the gaps we have. Wither it be a live class or even online.

Al kutubanama nice images.

If Rosetta Stone can come up with a language program with so many different languages, a Taino type program is NOT impossible. Many of us have enough input for something like this, which can be upgraded as more of the language is revealed. I'm sure I'm NOT the only one who has thought along these lines!!! I want to hear some of you say; HAN, DA TIAO!!! DA AK'ABO TO KA!!! (Yes, my brother!!! I am with you!!!)

Yalmang! And no Frank a Taino CD isn't farfetched, that would be great. I think the people working on the Taino language are make sure everything is right before the release things.
