The turkey, the bird native in the Americas, is named after the country Turkey. That’s just in English; the story gets weirder. In Arabic, the turkey bird is called “dik rumi” or “Roman chicken.” In Hebrew, it is “tarnegol hodu,” the “rooster of India.” In Portuguese, it is “Peru.” As in the other country, yes. In Greek it is “galopoula” or “French chicken.” Both Khmer and Scots Gaelic call the turkey “French,” too. Meanwhile, the French call the turkey “dinde” which is a shortened form of “poule d'Inde” or “chicken of India.”

And what do the Turkish call the turkey? They are slightly unique: they call the bird “Hindi,” after one of the main languages of India.

16.10.17  The light was so cool this morning it was like everything was under this autumn-y orange glow. I think it was the storm which passed over.  Once again I spend the day in the Wills Memorial Library. I feel like today is going so slowly but at last I’m being really productive! I think I should try to keep 8am starts up, start studying by 9? Feeling very harry pottery today! xxxx emily

[03/11/17] I’m currently juggling four different essays but managing to hold it all together. Between lectures today I did some reading about postcolonial curation, then spent the evening scoping out ideas for a piece of coursework that I’m really excited about.
