It's A Culture Thing

Friday, October 08, 2010

The inuit have 18 words for snow, because snow is literally around them, and it means a lot to their culture. By virtue of comparison, I hearby present my partial list and leave you to draw your own conclusions.

Tae. Echas. Ebak. Jebs. Ebs. Jerbak. Ipot. Tatche. Tubol. Lubot. Shet. Swerte. Etat. Bakangtae. Tibe.

Fourteen words, not counting dialect localizations.

It's a culture thing.

Lubot means "ass" in bisaya. Or was it sampot?

Anyway, you forgot "igit".
