    Default karadji/mekigar

    Dear teachers:

    I encountered difficulty in understaing the following words (in brackets). It seems to me they are not English words. Is it possilbe that you can do me a favor?

    He may be old, but he's a black, he's slim and -of course- he's a (karadji), a (mekigar), a wizard. Full of (buginja) power, possessed of (miwi) magic.

    Thanks a lot.

    karadji- clever man

    I don't know the others- it's just Will Self showing off-he likes to use words that no one has ever heard of. They must just be special powers in that region, and a special magic.
