Fluturas and Birrabirros
I was remembering today how a friend at school learned how to say ‘butterfly’ in some twenty different languages. It’s such a pretty project. So I started making a list of my favorite butterfly translations, and it seems to be one of the most beautiful words in so many different cultures.
Of course there are the usual suspects.
But, doing a little searching, I also found these fantastic examples.
Japan: choo, or chou chou, or chocho
Amharic, from Ethiopia: birrabirro
With just a little effort, I think I could manage learning this list. And, if you want to check out a longer selection, I found a web-page dedicated to the subject here.
