“They don’t point,” Everett said. Nor, he added, do they have words for right and left. Instead, they give directions in absolute terms, telling others to head “upriver” or “downriver,” or “to the forest” or “away from the forest.” Everett told the man to say whether the monkey was going upriver or downriver. The man said something in reply.
I am a contractor in the Wikimedia Foundation, improving MediaWiki's support for different languages. As a volunteer, I am also a member of Wikimedia Israel and of the Language committee. Unless otherwise stated, my actions from this user name are actions of a private volunteer Wikipedia editor that have nothing to do with the above organizations.
I hate citations from Metacritic and Rotten Tomatoes in articles about albums and movies. They are ugly and evil; a necessary evil is still evil.
