Brazilian Portuguese
Prata = Silver

You're locked in for Brazilian Portuguese, but would need to submit another word, for Silver is already taken.

@All: The words need not be Bitcoin related. They can be any word, albeit not foul, otherwise I won't fuckin' use it.

All the other other submissions look fine. Getting a fresh cup of coffee, then I'll update the OP.

Keep 'em a comin'!

French: liberté

Guess what it means.

I guessed Liberty, but if I'm wrong, please correct me, for I didn't research it.

Adding a Yoruba word to the list.

North and South do indeed use the same language, just as Americans and Cajuns both speak English -- kind of. They can understand each other (aside from Spanish / Mexican style) word differences across a 50+ year gap in sharing information, but the pronunciation is much different, similar to someone in the deep country of South Korea.

As for a word to pick for South Korea? 관심 (Kwanshim). That about sums up the two Koreas and everything they stand for in a nutshell.

관의 심 = The core of the pipe
관의심  = Tube doubt

Which one are you suggesting, or is there a better translation?

Not "관의심", just "관심". http://endic.naver.com/krenEntry.nhn?entryId=19679d523120474eac3679797bce0ff4&query=%EA%B4%80%EC%8B%AC

It means "attention". Both the citizens and the government of South Korea are major attention whores. For the North, it's only true of the government.

Accepted! Thanks, bud.

Now, to add some stripes to the list(s) in the OP, by introducing a Northern Sotho word.

Looks like Cyrillic script, so I guess Hosil (ho-see-l)

Still no Japanese up there? I'm surprised...

便所 (benjo) - Japan is famous for this piece of technology.

Note that the word works for Chinese too, with the same meaning.  Wink

That makes sense, since they're next door to each other, they would use the same style of soup kettle. Damn shame, though, that they stole the idea from Psytoshi's kinfolk.
