One possible worry here is that this designation **may** be considered
derogative. Not that I know that it is. I'm just worried that it might be.
Aukaans, ³Djoeka² , ³Djuka² , Ndjuká, Ndyuka, Njuká, Okanisi
Even though ISO 639-3 lists only Aukan.
Ethnologue also comments: "Spelling of Ndyuka without the initial nasal is
considered derogatory." (this is also indicated by the quote marks for
these entries in the alternate names list quoted above).
