The Hebrew that is translated as “silence” in English is reinforced in Sar with the ideophone (a word that expresses what is perceived by the five senses) kúkúkú (“a place which is silent kúkúkú“). Kúkúkú expresses “calm (lack of noise), slow movement, or something fixed. Examples: the sky which is covered with big clouds, the great calm which reigns in the middle of the night, the clouds which move, very slowly, without wind, rain or noise.” (Source: Ngarbolnan Riminan in Le Sycomore 2000, p. 20ff.)
