Smile Do Eskimo's 'Snore' or 'Sleep'???
Well, in my research about how Sleep Apnoea is 'Perceived' and treated aroung the world, I found this odd fact?

In the Inukitut Language (Eskimo, well one of their languages), the alphabet dosn't have a letter 'Z', this poses a question?

How can they sleep or snore without the letter 'Z'


(I must get out more?)

I suppose it is pretty much the way the French do. They tend to snore with an R (from the first letter of 'ronfler' the french word for snore) Big Grin

I do not know what word the Eskimos use for snore though.....Thinking-about
