It was interesting in the "Korea Times" story to note the names of the two
Cia Cia students who visited Korea: Fidriana and Samsir. Aren't those names
self-defeating manifestations of precisely how 'han'gul' is NOT suited to
their language, assuming that the Cia Cia will use the same letter values
and orthography now in use? And exactly how is Cia Cia pronounced and
written in 'hangul'?
