at home

The Greek that is translated as “at home” or similar in English is translated in Tohono O’odham as “there where he was accustomed to staying” and in Seri as “in a house,” since “in his house” would imply that he was married, as a single man normally lives in his parents’ house. (Source: B. Moore / G. Turner in Notes on Translation 1967, p. 1ff.)
