It appears the myth that Eskimos have fifty different words for 'snow' dates back a century to an anthropologist named Franz Boas. In his Handbook of American Indian Languages, he explained how "aput" meant "fallen snow" whereas "qana" meant "falling snow" and so forth. He went on to describe other examples, and others took from this that Eskimos must have fifty different words for snow. People still debate this, and Kate Bush illustrates the absurdity of it all in this adorably long-winded recitation, with the help of the singularly unique vocal stylings of Stephen Fry. These are not "Eskimo" words per se. They are Ms. Bush's list of words, some intentionally kitsch and silly, and put into Fry's mouth because it's fun, with her prodding him all the way to keep going and get on with it. Share and enjoy.   3
