Unedited wordlist of Tura with comparative forms from Appleby 1943 and Wanga. Typed by Alfred Anangwe but not yet edited by Michael Marlo or a native speaker. Virtually all of the data need to be re-checked because after the Appleby 1943 entry "huchirisia", the translator failed to positively confirm that the Appleby 1943 form and the Tura forms are identical.   314k v. 1 Jan 24, 2010, 11:20 AM Michael Marlo
