Word for the Travel Wise (07/14/06)
Today's word is a Faroese word used in the Faroe Islands:
handilskjarni - (pronounced huhn-dils-chuhd-neh) market
Just like the foods found at the market I'm sure you'll find asking for directions to get there just as much fun. Faroese is spoken by some 60,000-80,000 people in both the Faroe Islands and Denmark. Check out the Wiki for a few words or this small blurb on the Faroe Island tourist site about how the tradtional dance has salvaged the language over several years. Lonely Planet has a small section of Faroese in their Scandinavian phrasebooks worth checking out.
