Words for snow[edit]

Pingo is a real word and as the article says it's derived from the the word for small hill. The dictionary for the dialect (similar to that used in Tuktoyaktuk, Northwest Territories, where most pingos are found) where I live gives "pinguatigaq" as "small mountain". However, as I just saw in Labrador Inuit the word "pinguk" translates to "pimple" which is how pingos look. See here and here. CambridgeBayWeather (Talk) 19:05, 11 August 2006 (UTC)
