Bat in Italian is so nice.
🦇 Pipistrello 🦇
@rek in icelandic bat is leðurblaka. Meaning leather flapper. And yes Batman is leðurblökumaðurinn = the leather flapper man
@rek @cblgh @esi 'fleder' is rather a description of their fluttery way of flying which is 'flattern' in german than anactual word. It could also be something like a description for the wings which look like leather which is 'leder' in german or 'läder' in swedish (they are called läderlappen in swedish)
@Sandra @squaregoldfish @cblgh @esi @opfez @rek As someone with no experience in this area, did the reference to glove as opposed to bat make enough sense in context, or did the disagreement between word and object confuse the viewer more than the idiomatic expression preserved the meaning of the subtext (i.e. cleverly played linguistic similarity)?
@rek I saw the observation somewhere that because a bat's wings are modified hands with membranes stretched between the "fingers", in effect ...
Bats fly by the power of "Jazz Hands".
@rek In Spanish is "Murcielago" making it one of the few words in in Spanish with the five vowels in it.
@ghostdancer I just edited a Spanish text with the word murciélago in it :>. I hadn't noticed the 5 vowels, super cool!
