-46- Linti

Standard

Noun. From Persian.

“A person who spends all day sat or lying underneath a tree”

Linti

 

This word comes with a negative connotation, indicating that the linti should be doing other things, but is instead wasting time. Much like I am doing today (well, it is 46 days into 2013 and this is the first sunshine I’ve seen on a day off!)

Cross-linguistic fact: linti also means ‘Damn’ in Ilonggo, an Austronesian languages spoken in parts of the Philippines.
