GSITS: I wish I could go further with this thought but I know nothing of Japanese unfortunately, and only a small passing knowledge of anything related to linguistics. I honestly don’t know where to go from here. I have followed this thread from the beginning and find it so fascinating and wish there was more information out there about it! Were you ever able to reach out to Dr. Ohkado? Because interestingly he does have a background in both Japanese (naturally) and linguistics! You seem to have extensive knowledge as well (hmm maybe you are Dr. Ohkado? *kidding*)— but do you think Menzieshill could very well be the place Tomo is referencing?
