    Just listened to the podcast. Great one as usual. I have just three comments:

    – Roger Mills was a field linguist who spent many years working in Indonesia. So yes, he had a large knowledge of various Indonesian languages, included but not limited to Bahasa Indonesia and Malay. And he was the first to acknowledge the influence these languages had had on Kash;
    – When Roger sadly passed away, I did propose that we should host his website on our servers, like we salvaged the Grey Wizard’s website. However, before we can do that, we need Roger’s family’s permission;
    – I feel privileged in that I got to meet Roger in person a few years ago, when he was in Amsterdam during a trip through Europe. I’ll always remember him as a frail man with a iron-strong mind, and an extremely interesting person to be with. When I got married back in 2007, one of the most valued gifts I received was from him: the _Olama Cetre_, or Kash Wedding Ceremony. The PDF of it is available in his website, with dedication to me and all :).

    Very fun episode. Every episode is fun, but it’s nice to hear a back-to-basics fisking of a featured conlang.
