Local look-ups: IndiaPosted by Finn Kirkland on August 08, 2011
So, moving on from Germany to India this week.
I took a look at the top 5 most sought-after words from India in the last week, and was mildly surprised to see that a couple of them were, in fact, Indian English.
Similarly, wheatish is a word I’d not come across before, and once I’d looked up the meaning, I realised why. The British population, on the whole, isn’t blessed with this sort of complexion: a more apt description might be chalkish (which I’ve just coined).
Make what you may of these.Email this Post
