Well, that does it! I'm going into a feeding frenzy!
Aronson's textbook was my first introduction to the delights of Georgian, and
now I've got access to the sounds - and a copy of Realplayer minus all the
infuriating pop-up ads that violate my sense of common courtesy - I'll be on
a downloading frenzy. and will probably pop out and buy the latest copy of
Aronson's "Georgian: A Reading Grammar" A.S.A.P.
Thanks a million.

Mau e ki, "He aha te mea nui?"
You ask, "What is the most important thing?"
Maku e ki, "He tangata, he tangata, he tangata."
I reply, "It is people, it is people, it is people."
