2019_08_26 (Kua Fieldwork)

I have brought our Kua consultant to Gaborone for two weeks. The most general goal of work on Kua now is to finish the grammar (co-authored with Andy Chebanne) so we can get it published. The only section that needs to be added is a short introductory section on the phonological inventory of the language (consonants including clicks, vowels and tones).
