I know I miss out on all sorts of interesting things by not following Reddit, but life is short and my online habits are pretty well set by now. Just now, however, thanks to LH reader Ryan O’Donnell, I have discovered the linguistics subreddit, which I may have to bookmark. Ryan sent me a link to Etymology Game #2 featuring North Asia, and it’s a lot of fun: five English words matched with semantic equivalents in Turkish, Ket, Chukchi, Mongolian, and Erzya (a branch of “Mordvin”—see this LH post), and a bonus question involving Adyghe; you have to decide if the words are etymologically related. They’re hard! I got most of them right, but the one I got wrong was surprising and educational. Here‘s Game #3, whose answers aren’t up yet. Thanks, Ryan!
