Word for the Travel Wise (02/11/06)
Today's word is a Lithuanian word used in Lithuania:
Viesbutis - Hotel
I don't suppose many of you have plans to go to Lithuania or learn the language, but I'm putting out there just in case. I know little of the country, but after searching for online resources I uncovered quite a few interesting details. First and foremost the best guide to the Baltics seems to be City Paper. They were the only ones who even offered a small list of commonly used Lithuanian words. The paper states you'll be okay if you know a little Russian and the Lithuanian lingo is closely related to the now extinct Old Prussian. Otherwise finding resources on this one were pretty hard and um, weird. This afoto site lets you learn the parts of the face and hair by clicking on a picture of a young girl. Something about this felt awkward, but it works, I guess. Ominglot has their usual written language guide and Orbislingua has a few audio and reading recommendations.
