Here’s something I learned today in the Cherokee language article on Wikipedia:
Due to the polysynthetic nature of the Cherokee language, new and descriptive words in Cherokee are easily constructed to reflect or express modern concepts. Some good examples are di-ti-yo-hi-hi (Cherokee:?????) which means “he argues repeatedly and on purpose with a purpose”. This is the Cherokee word for attorney. Another example is di-da-ni-yi-s-gi (Cherokee:??????) which means the final catcher or “he catches them finally and conclusively”. This is the Cherokee word for policeman.
Also, I found out that Windows Vista and Mac OS X comes pre-installed with a Cherokee language font. Isn’t that cool?!
