show comment

For some of the speakers ǀʼhuu is a noun meaning 'cold wind' or 'cold weather'; for other speakers, the expression khinn ǀʼhuu is lexicalized and they don't regard ǀʼhuu as an independent noun anymore; at least two speakers (both Eastern dialect) treat ǀʼhuu alone as a verb meaning 'feel cold'.
