A Reporter at Large: The Interpreter. Committed to an existence in which only observable experience is real, the Pirahã do not think, or speak, in abstractions—and thus do not use color terms, quantifiers, numbers, or myths.
The Interpreter (La intérprete) - 2005 "Zuwanie: [reading from the dedication of a book he wrote decades earlier] THE GUNFIRE AROUND us makes it hard to hear. But the human voice is different from other sounds. It can be heard over noises that bury everything else. Even when it's not shouting. Even when it's just a whisper. Even the lowest whisper can be heard - -over armies... when it's telling the truth."
I picked this because learning some of the Common Russian Words Could be handy. If I can't pronounce them well, I can at least point to the word. This can come into play if an interpreter can't make it right away & I am in a pinch for some answers to questions.
