In the last couple of days I’ve discovered the Biloxi used to say
While at first the idea of "drinking" tobacco seemed odd, I’ve since discovered that it is not so unusual. I’m told that "drink" for smoke also occurs in Crow (another Siouan language), some eastern Algonquian languages, and even Japanese:
tabako wo nomu
tobacco OBJ drink
Anyone know of other languages that have this idea of "drinking" for smoking?
Update: It appears I can add Hindi and Egyptian Arabic to the above. Thanks for your feedback!
