Now for Quichua…

Category : Uncategorized

One of the many reasons I enjoy the Quichua language is learning about its subtleties and ‘technical’ jargon. Since the Quichua culture has many agricultural roots, the jargon has to do with farming. For instance, the words “MISHA” and “MISHAYUG” are among my favorite words. “MISHA” refers to the sole blue kernel of an otherwise uniformly white or yellow ear of corn. Is there such a specific word in English or Spanish? And, yet the same word can also be translated as ‘WART”.
Context is everything! 🙂
