My Kyrgystan friend taught me the word, "dog" in Russian.
I don't know how to spell, but she pronounced the word, "Sa-ba-ka."
I said to her, "'Ba-ka' means stupid in Japanese."
She said with a smile,"I know it. Japanese 'Sa:さあ? means that I don't know, so 'Sa-ba-ka' may mean that I don't know if he's stupid."
Her story was really interesting for me and I was impressed her intellect.
