Word for the Travel Wise (12/03/06)

Mongolia FlagToday has been an extremely long day of driving. I have no desire to see another car, steering wheel, vehicle, or anything to do with the road. I'm pooped. Only the call of duty keeps me up and that is bringing you today's word and more! See how much I care?

Today's word is a Mongolian word used in Mongolia:

gudamj - street

Mongolian is an Altaic language and spoken by over two million people throughout Mongolia (where it has official language status) and by up to three million people in northern China. Wikipedia doesn't offer much for increasing your Mongolian vocabulary, but it has great background information. Learning Mongolian online will be tough without an understanding of their alphabet or script used. Omniglot is the perfect place to begin to start learning the alphabet. For quick reference use LP's Mongolian Phrasebook on your trip.

Past Mongolian words: mori
