Verb. From Inuit.
“The act of eating in a cemetery”
This is probably the most non-relateable word I’ve found so far. Nevertheless, it’s great for 2 reasons:
- A word like this actually exists
- The word is from Inuit, which in itself is a fascinating language because of its pronunciation, its writing system, and the way in which it merges smaller words together to create bigger ones (known as ‘agglutinative’), similar to German and Finnish.
I hope to do more with the Inuit language during my projectthreesixfive as some of them are fantastic! In the mean time, take a look here as to why the eskimos (some of whom use Inuit), contrary to popular belief, do not have hundreds of words for snow!
