I finally thought of a satisfactory solution. I've placed *qo'qo* and *tanje'rIn* into the borrowed fruits and vegetable list, and put foods like rice and soda into the list at the end. I agree with you that it isn't particularly useful to just lump all the TalkNow foods together. This did mean, however, that I had to note the exceptions (coconut, tangerine) to the rule that Terran foods always add a word like *naH*.
