RE: KLBC: qoSDajvaD...

One grammar comment - the way <pong> works is that the thing being named
gets a <-vaD>, while the name is the direct object:

DIrvamvaD <walIt> lupong tera'nganpu'.

Also, I'd probably transliterate "wallet" as <wallet> or maybe <wal'et>, but
that's just me. With <walIt> or <walet>, I stress the second syllable, and
it just comes out weird. I think it's time to go through the (very brief)
section in TKD on stress again, just to know for sure what it says.
