Does anyone know of any use of "kajira" before John Norman's Gor books? (I'm not sure about the whole page infact, since it feels like lists at the end of Dom and sub articles would be enough.) Tanos 15:16, 13 January 2006 (GMT)

Yeah, I'm questioning that, too -- I don't know of any pre-Norman use of "Kajira". The closest entry on the OED is "Kajawah". I'm guessing that Norman took "Hegira" and gave it a new first syllable and new meaning, and interpreted its last vowel to fit in with a Latin inflectional ending. He often does things like that: Purdah to Kurdah, Sahara to Tahari, etc. etc. AnonMoos 00:06, 14 September 2006 (BST)
P.S. This article is currently an odd grab-bag -- it should either be made much more comprehensive, or should be given a narrow and specific focus. AnonMoos 00:07, 14 September 2006 (BST)
