Lynne’s academic linguistic notes in the introduction of the book.

Image of Lynne’s linguistic notes. The text reads, “1) Specialists in Puerto Rico and in the USA, among other places, are attempting to reconstruct the Taino language. They have requested that we use the letter “k” to represent the hard sound of the letter “c” when writing words such as “kacike,” “yuka” and “konuko,” instead of a “c” like the Spaniards use, to ensure that the pronunciation is correct. 2) When referring to the Taino Nation or Taino People as a whole, “the Taino,” without the final “s” is correct. “Tainos,” with an “s” refers to particular groups of individuals. I have followed these practices in my books.
