I'm struggling to figure out what new material to quiz myself on at this point. It kind of feels like I can read things in Kriol (and maybe also hear things) and understand what they mean, but producing them myself is another matter. Two of the only words I can think of quizzing myself on are:

isn't it? = ngabi?
forever = olagija

Apparently, this is also a word in Australian Kriol, though unknown to speakers at Fitzroy Crossing under the age of 35 at the time this paper was written:

kraingki 'mad, insane, foolish'
