commentary

In a 2002 poll, "jalan" was proposed to replace "noka". However, it failed to get enough votes. In pu, "noka" has the meaning of "place that is down". In common usage (both before and after pu), "anpa" has that meaning instead. noka had speculative and/or joking use for numbers, comparable to luka: ten, twenty, negative five.
