Curtis W Franks (Sun Nov 8 19:01:23 2020)

I do not understand the derivation of this word, although I agree that we
need it.

My first idea was for a compound ending with jundi, which felt off
because flow is also, in a sense, a *lack* of jundi-ing. Then gathered a
few other related words, sat for a while looking at them, before getting
impatient and squeezing .o'e/.o'u/zmiku/gunka together.

Spellings with more thoughtful etymologies are of course most welcome.
