Omniglot News (10/10/21)

There are four new language pages on Omniglot this week:

  • Mori Atas and Mori Bawah, closely related Celebic languages spoken in the southeast of Sulawesi in Indonesia.
  • Kulisusu (Pogau Kolinsusu), a Celebic language spoken on Buton Island in Southeast Sulawesi Province of Indonesia.
  • Red Karen or West Kayah (ꤊꤢꤛꤢꤟ), a Karen language spoken in eastern Myanmar and nearby parts of Thailand.

There’s a new numbers page in West Kayah (ꤊꤢꤛꤢꤟ), a variety of Red Karen spoken in northeastern Myanmar.

On the Omniglot blog this week there’s a post called Astringent Hestiation about Shibuya (渋谷), a part of Tokyo; a post about connections between words for Concerts and Beer in various European languages, and the Language Quiz.

The mystery language in last week’s language quiz was (Ong) Be, a Krai-Dai language spoken in northern Hainan Island in southern China.

This week’s Celtiadur post is about words for Cloaks and Veils in Celtic languages.

The Adventure in Etymology this week explores connections between Walls, Whelks and Helicopters.

I also made improvements to Kayah Li alphabet page.
