The name of a star in the Katkop dialect: the Hare's star
The names of a number of Stars have been ascertained with the kind help of Mr. Maclear. Besides a separate alphabetical index to the Stars, the names of some are given in a supplementary list (B XXV. 2345–2347 and 2354); whilst another list in the Katkop dialect has not yet been identified on the map of the sky (L IV. –4. 3882 and 3901–3907). A short piece on the Hare's star (or !nau ka |kuatti) describing where it can be seen in January 1874.
