Glyph of the word 'eu'.


  • (n.) clam
  • (phon.) glyph for the sequence eu

A hoku ipe eu!
“That clam is huge!”

Notes: The “clam” part of that glyph takes a line determiner; the other is just the phonetic glyph.

You know, I do enjoy clams (e.g. in clam chowder), but I feel bad about how defenseless they are… They’re simply no match at all for our tools; they can’t even put up a fight. In fact, fishing (all kinds) is probably the most barbaric of all forms of hunting and harvesting. Most fish suffocate to death. At least cows get a quick death…

On the other hand, I suppose seafood (not farmed seafood, but seafood from the sea) at least gets to know freedom. Perhaps that’s consolation enough…?
