Ananas versus the World: different words for pineapple. <!-- more --> Udzu: Inspired by this rather misleading post from 2015, I thought I’d try and guesstimate just how dominant ‘ananas’ actually is as a term for pineapple worldwide. To make this remotely tractable (there are over 5000 languages worldwide!) I settled for figuring out the dominant form in each country: hence Canada is marked as pineapple despite its 7+m French speakers, while India is marked as ananas despite its 100+m Telegu and Malayalam speakers. Throughout I went by actual spoken languages, rather than just official languages. I’m still missing Eswatini, Gabon, Namibia and South Sudan, so if anyone knows how to say pineapple in seSwati, Fon, Ovambo, Dinka, Nuer, etc, do let me know! Based on this map, I’m reasonably confident that over a third of the world do not say ananas for pineapple. Apart from the Anglosphere and Hispanosphere, the main non-ananasians live in East and South-East Asia, and West Africa. No idea why.
