In this thread we appreciate the masterwork that is Finnegans Wake.
This is one of the thunderwords which actually depicts the falling of the tower of babel and the division of language.
babadal - stuttering of babel
gharagta - from the hindi for thunder
kamminaronkon - from the japanese for thunder
bronn - from the greek for thunder
tonnerron - from the french for thunder
tuon - from the italian for thunder
thunn - from the english for thunder
trovarr - from the t. alberto barbosa for thunder
hounawnskawn - a combination of the swedish and irish for thunder
toohoohoordenen - a stuttering of the danish for thunder
thurunk - from another irish way to say thunder
As you can see, it is an onomatopoeic word that demonstrates each new language describing the event. It is a celebration of different languages and the pleasure of speech itself.
