Word for the Travel Wise (06/18/06)

Just a quick note for all the wonderful adventure dads or armchair traveling fathers reading here this Sunday evening, hope you’re having a most magnificent father’s day and more!

Today’s word is a Somali word used in Somalia:

aabbe – (pronounced ah-bo) father

Since Somali isn’t spoken by a large population learning the language online for free will be a difficult task to accomplish. You maybe able to find an exchange partner online at My Language Exchange, provided there are Somali speakers registered with the site. Your best bet would be travel within the country, finding a local tutor or purchasing language software from African Language dot com. Their CD-ROM is priced at $99 USD, so may wish to shop around before buying.

Past Somali words: maxaad shektay, qaalin, khapar
