  1. Words amazingly cross cultural lines. The Oxford Manderin Chinese Dictionary translator for example (story of the Chinese Zodiac).

    Compounds? Or take Inukituk for instance. The alphabet is derived of the Cree I think. Recently Ottawa misconscrewed Iqaluit by placing an added ‘u’ in it. On the redtape media blocker for the PMO’s podium it read:

    Ottawa:
    “Iqualuit”

    or

    Ottawa:
    “people with unwiped bums”

    the living nonstandard gaffe running around as Ben would say.

    Great Blog Carl, thanks:
