Last year some students in our school took part in the #asísedi campaign, a collaborative activity to learn and raise awareness on the right forms that exist in Galician to refer to everyday aspects of our life.
Students and teachers were invited to write words in Galician on an empty piece of a paper, which remained available and public over a period of time so anyone could stop by and share a word they knew.
The first semantic field we proposed was autumn and we asked people to simply write down or share on social networks what they associated this season with. Many words that were written on the board referred to melancholy, or popular festivities like “O magosto”, “Samaín” or “Tódolos Santos”. What ideas would have added?
After checking the correctness and suitability of the words, we posted the result:
How many of these words do you know in English?
