Inuit Language: A Dog Named "Nanuq" (Polar Bear)


Description

Languages need never die. Nearly forgotten words can be resurrected and put to appropriate use. A recycling of words, as it were. A dog named Nanuq is a case in point. 

A friend recently shared a photo of her best friend. She named him Nanuq because his fur reminded her of a polar bear.

 

Do you have any resurrected or recycled words you would like to share with us? Do send us an e-mail.

 

"In Inuit mythology, Nanook or Nanuq (Inuktitut syllabics: ᓇᓄᖅ), which is from the Inuit language for polar bear, was the master of bears, meaning he decided if hunters had followed all applicable taboos and if they deserved success in hunting bears."
