It is a popular legend that the Inuit have an unusually large number of words for snow. Lately I came across an article on climate change in northern Canada. It described the serious impact this has on the lives of the Inuit people. New words, like “silaup asijjipallianinga” (gradual change in the weather), have had to be invented to be able to deal with the new condition of life.
