Short- The gift of Gab

August 5, 2011

Such a curious expression. Amid my struggles to understand and speak Tajik, I stumbled upon a potential explanation for this phrase. English stole it from Tajik.

Gab- root of the Tajik word “to talk”, Eng. “to chit chat” or “pratter”

Such is the madness of lanuages.
