sour wine / vinegar

The Hebrew and Greek that is translated in English as “sour wine” or “vinegar” is translated in North Alaskan Inupiatun as “wine,” in Navajo as “sour grape juice,” in Aguaruna “bitter drink,” and in Yatzachi Zapotec as “cheap wine.” (Source: M. Larson / B. Moore in Notes on Translation February 1970, p. 1-125.)

In Noongar it is translated as as kepa djadam or “sour / bitter water.” (Source: Bardip Ruth-Ang 2020)
