Noun[edit]

chąąʼ (possessed form bichaan)

  1. feces, dung, excrement, shit

Usage notes[edit]

  • Although it can be translated as "shit," chąąʼ is not considered nearly as vulgar as "shit" is in English.
  • The possessed form bichąąʼ is possible, but it is rude and inelegant, somewhat like "his shit". The possessed form bichaan is a polite word, more equivalent to manure, ordure.
