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.
