At the opposite end of the spectrum is South Korea, where the *largest* paper denomination is 10,000 Won, or about 10 bucks, meaning that if you go to the ATM and take out a reasonable amount of money you walk away with a giant stack of cash that does not fit in your wallet.
Bulky/heavy pockets are one of my biggest pet peeves in life. Drives me nuts.
I tried youngling.
I think there's more focus on individual animal names: pup, kid, chick, cub, etc. (Especially trivially)
Maybe there isn't a lot of focus on development-stages of animals in everyday life. Aside from "weened". Probably helps people avoid thinking about the animals they eat.
I know yoke from Oregon Trail. And it's a mechanical engineering term (some people probably use it for automotive parts).
And yurts are the one thing every Mongolia/central Asia documentary or travel segment will highlight. (maybe because it's a bit boring of a lifestyle, and they need to fill time). That, and the sheep. And they're also popular with hippies/weirdos in rural areas of probably the USA/Canada at least.
Like an igloo or teepee I guess. Something that sticks in the back of your head.
