East Caucasian languages - names chemical elements
Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Schulze wrote: Dear Michael, many thanks for your message. Unfortunately, I'm afraid that my data won't be of great help to you. All I can do is supplying you with the names of some metals. I never came across words for say oxygen in any of the East Caucasian languages I have worked with. Naturally, in some languages such terms may have been produced (e.g. in Chechen, but I do not have further data), but they would rarely be in use because the scientific domain of chemists is usually referred to by either Russian or Azeri. Attached I send you the names for some metals in a selection of East Caucasian languages (nine languages out of 30).Best wishes, Wolfgang
