Ietu’í

Glyph of the word 'ietu'i'.

ietu’í

Ka ale ietu’í ko!
“April has arrived!”

Notes: April’s going to be a big month: NCAA championship, start of baseball, NBA playoffs, NHL playoffs, NBA Draft Lottery, NFL “draft” (we’ll see what happens there)…

Oh, and some show is debuting. That’ll be nice.

Today’s word comes from the Zhyler word Yeswÿğü (orthographically, yeswh©X). The name of the month comes from the word for “rain”, yeswi, or yeswi. How the vowel changed over the course of time is a mystery to me. (Really is. I think it may have been a mistake, but I’m sticking with it. Stranger things have happened… [After all, it’s kitap in Turkish, not kitep.])

On the Kamakawi islands, rain is nothing that could be associated with such a short span of time. There’s a rainy season (in which it rains a lot), and a dry season (in which it rains a little).

You know, when I went to Jamaica, it was like this. It rained everyday between, say, 3 and 4 p.m. It was awesome. I loved it.

Hey, Butler advanced to the National Championship Game… How about that. One of the people playing our tournament challenge game called Butler in the final. Kudos to her!
