Word for the Travel Wise (06/28/06)
Today's word is an Inuktitut word used in Canada:
malikkit - follow them
Inuktitut words as noted from this Nunavut.com site are more "like Lego blocks, intricate pieces locked together to produce a nugget of meaning." Wiki breaks things down further with in depth info on territories where the language is heard in Canada, differences between Inukitut and the Inuit heard in Greendland and Alaska and includes pictures of the alphabet. Learning this one on the web will be tough, but for those who wish to tackle such linguistic feats check out the links above and some of these last few: Nunavut Living Dictionary, Inkutitut Syllabarium, the Inukitut Morphology List which holds the key to one of the best online dictionaries for getting started.
