So, rather than make anyone interested do their own legwork, I'm going to start going through and checking what words or phrases Bubbles has used and post translations and pronunciations here. I'm sure Bubbles will catch on and continue to do so *Hint hint wink wink*

I'm going to start with a few that may or may not have been used already but are likely to come up at some point. Keep in mind, Mando'a doesn't deal much in gendered words so for instance buir (father) also means mother and vod (brother) also means sister.
