Excellent, easy to use and a wide variety of words. Very impressive for a language that was dormant and is being revived from old, written records. I noticed a few minor issues: Stock images of clownfish, yellow tang etc could be replaced with more relevant/local species. Unclear what 'word type: va' etc means. Possibly need a little more info/instructions, even if it's relegated to the menu somewhere to keep the app as simple as it currently is. Images in 'traditional search' seem to be very high resolution and took a long time to download on my 10mbps connection - could substitute with lower resolution images with little to no impact on UX.
