This forum is obviously English, but many users are from non-English speaking countries too, and/or their mother tongue is other than English. Permaculture also embraced many words from other languages, such as milpa from Nahuatl language, which is a system of producing a diversity of crops together.
I was recently listening to a podcast about books, in which a translator complained about "smaller" languages disappearing as the more popular ones dominate the world.
So I thought we could all come up with some words, maybe not your favourite ever, but a non-English word of the day?
Here is mine - not a very Polish word, but somewhat relates to permaculture concept of constructing and creating things. The word is "wihajster", and in Polish it means "tool", but not any specific tool; can be a multi-purpose thing, or your favourite item that you always have at hand, or something you're looking for, or something you're not really sure what's it for.
It is of German origin, and comes from wie heißt er - "what's his name" - as if you forgot the actual name of the thing, but also when it can be used in many different ways.
