Translation:The bamboo tree
The Inuits have something like ̀50 names for snow. English language has 1 word for snow. This is because snow isn't so important in our culture, but it is important in theirs. Different cultures have many more words for things that we only have one word for, because of the difference in historical cultural uses (this is just my opinion, but it makes sense!).
Thanks for the help DD, but I'm still confused. In a different reply above you said the opposite of what you replied to me. You said it was a bamboo tree, but you told me that it means bamboo rod. How about this, can you give me different examples where I can use cây and tre separately in different words? How do you say "bamboo leaf" or "fishing rod"?
