Akita! { Akita! }

[When Dinosaurs Ruled Earth; also Nokita!]

Language of an earlier time was of a simpler fare, as presented in When Dinosaurs Ruled Earth, one of several “neanderthal/dinosaur co-existence” films. The exclamatory “Akita!” apparently meant “Something is happening!” and was used in practically every sentence. Other phrases include “Akita! Akita!” (“Something is really happening!”) and “Nokita!” (“Something is/is not happening!”). Hey, even the low-budget TV show “Land of the Lost” had a linguistics “expert.” This phrase is best used while pointing at anything.
