More names for watercourses arrived in my inbox overnight - so here they are to add to yesterday's list:-
From South Africa - spruit, umfula, umfulana
From Norway - lok, sig, sik, sikle, bekk and elv, groft and renne.
Also on one comment (I think it is Bovey Belle, but am in a hurry and have not got time to look now) there is a wonderful word I have never heard, which I presume is a colloquial word for 'daft' - the word is 'blardy'. I feel another meme coming on!
On the subject of watercourses - isn't it interesting how there are suffixes - e.g. bach and bachlein (for a smaller version) and here, above, umfula and umfulana (zulu words). Have a nice weekend. I shall, hopefully, post later in the day after morning coffee with friends.
