Glyph of the word 'uela'.


  • (n.) moss

A nana Lita i uela te leya.
“Lisa licks moss off a rock.”

Notes: So, my dictionary entry actually reads as follows: “the moss that grows on the land, specifically in moist areas, like rain forests or swamps.” I find this a bit perplexing, since moss can’t grow underwater. Huh.

Anyway, I’ve always liked moss. It’s like a nice, soft carpet.

Oh, and in case you’re wondering why I’ve included a food tag in this entry (and what’s up with the sample sentence), it comes from the Simpsons episode “Das Bus”, wherein Lisa, being a vegetarian, licks moss off a rock for sustenance, while the rest of the kids eat a wild boar. The sentence above is the actual stage direction from the script.
