Hello, December

Well, December already.  Hard to believe.  Although the solstice is officially 3 weeks away yet, the season is wintery.  So for today’s Hanis words, we’ll talk about autumn and winter, because in Hanis these two words are relative.

Winter is qaluu, and autumn is qaluuwiye –meaning, becoming winter.

In turn, the root of both words is based on qal, ‘old’.
