Also black pepper?[edit]

Can this also mean black pepper? 05:48, 6 August 2012 (UTC)

No, it would be something different. I think it is azeeʼ díchʼííʼ łibáhí, but I’m not sure. —Stephen (Talk) 07:27, 7 August 2012 (UTC)

It's the term used by Yellowhair in the illustrated dictionary, in reference to a shaker for black pepper (along with a salt shaker). 08:18, 7 August 2012 (UTC)

If Yellowhair uses it that way, then it’s right. —Stephen (Talk) 10:09, 7 August 2012 (UTC)

Many cultures use the same term for chili pepper and black pepper (like "pepper" in English, "jiao" in Chinese, or "tieu" in Vietnamese), but there are always qualifiers that distinguish between the two. So it probably does exist in Navajo for black pepper or black peppercorns. 17:26, 7 August 2012 (UTC)
