I think the author had done a wonderful work in compiling the grammar usage of our native language. However, in our language we did not use the vowel sound of "Q" as He had used in "Toqabaqita".Rather the name Toqabaqita should be correctly spelt as TO'AMBAITA. I recon He consult us the indigenous people of To'ambaita before going along publishing another related book in our language.
