How many words for 'Snow' do Eskimos/Inuits have?

Post  Lee Van Queef on Fri Apr 15, 2011 11:39 pm

I remember hearing it was something like 143.

But then I remember hearing that it was a myth.

Then I remember hearing that Eskimos don't have one single langauge, which possibly makes things more complicated.

It is not exactly a myth, but it's a nonsensical question, according to uzi/user: http://acrosstheuniverse.forummotion.com/t598-the-science-of-eskimos-and-why-you-could-be-in-danger
