This time I blame being late on the shorter month, I thought I had 2 more days.

Awell, theres some interesting parts in this one, like the bohrok kaita and working with the Maori on proper use of their culture's words.

I have read the article. Well, that is interesting for something to have happened back then. But if Lego wasn't able to use the moari vocabulary, how were they able to create such unique foreign names for the Bionicle universe? Like matoran, and bohrok for example?

When I come up with unique bionicle names within my bionicle universe, I mix things up from Moari + Italian + Slavic vocabulary and add a little of my idea of what it should be like.

Unless I misunderstand what your saying, I think the words they did use from then on were either an amalgamation of approved words (They felt words were misused/abused in part, not neccesarily that a particular word should be banned from use) or they were completly original words that sort of seemed to fit the story.
