We did, but it disappeared. So, let's start it anew.

Klaatu, Barada, Nikto as they were named in ROTJ are named after the words that halted the robot in The Day Earth Stood Still.

Ummm... how many puppeteers were needed to operate the real Jabba in ROTJ?

I actually thought it was seven. One for each arm, three in the tail and torso, and two in the head.

No clue whatsoever. Give it a day or so for other people to see the question and attempt an answer.

Shimraa! You're learning to spell correctly? Does that mean you're hooked on phonics? Just kidding!

I don't think it's so much a case of him learning to spell correctly as it is he is spelling words that do not exist and we, therefore, cannot correct him.
