-112- Zeg

Standard

Noun. From Georgian.

“The day after tomorrow”

day_after_tomorrow

Despite this being a fantastic word which would be very useful in English, I can’t help but think that the film of the same name would be worse if it was just called Zeg.

As a point of grammatical interest, this website states that the word is an adverb but it seems to function well as a noun (or perhaps adjective?) in English. Plus, it shows how the word is written in Georgian script, too!

      Since posting this I’ve discovered it in loads of languages, including some instances of words to detonate “the day before yesterday.” I wonder why English hasn’t got single-word equivalents for them…?
