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.
That was kinda the effect I was going for, actually. "Those Terrans call this 
skin a (demonstrating the strange name they have chosen)  ' wah - lit '.
