The list was and is complete, i.e., every adverbial we have in tlhIngan Hol.  
I laser printed it before I ever left home for the qep'a' SochDIch.  MO saw 
the entire list.  He did not write on it; we only talked about the entries.  
I was especially hopeful he would like {jaSHa'}; I was so in love with the 
possibility before we even began to talk.  His comments did not address every 
entry.  I suspect he had already covered some entries enough, such as Do'Ha', 
obviously already okay.  As you say, he had already said vajHa' didn't work 
for him.  Well, that's just about what I remember about jaSHa'.  Merely that 
" [possibly not verbatim] I don't think it works."  He did not volunteer any 
other information about why it doesn't SEEM to work or what else would work.  

Hope this helps.  Actually, if MO would just come out and tell all of KLI, we 
wouldn't have this side-bar conversations with him revealing things only one 
of us has been privvy to.  I did post a time or two since qep'a' SochDIch the 
results of that conversation with MO.  We are just now "settling" the issue.

Still, if a KLI member could have an official interview with Dr. Okrand and 
bring up jaSHa' and anything else we have been wondering about, probably we 
would get the best answers.
