-31- Pelinti


Verb. From Buli.

“To move food around in your mouth because it is too hot”


A great word, possibly that only the other people around you could indicate as you’ll be wafting your hand in front of your face and possibly making an arghhghgghg kind of sound!

The Buli language, for those curious, is based in Ghana. Ethnologue gives a little more information on it, but it’s quite difficult to find anything other than that! If you know anything about it and would like to share, leave a comment!
