Hello all, here's another of those "How do say"'s:

I'd like the word for "hair" in as many languages as possible, transliteration/IPA included if you can. I've already got:
·Haitian Creole - cheve
·Hindi - baal/बाल
·French - cheveux
·Spanish - pelo (cabello?)
·Japanese - kami?
·Hebrew - se'ara?

If the language you know makes a distinction between head and body, feel free to include that too. Thanks!


And a bonus question: is there a word in English for 'pertaining to hair'? Like sartorially is 'pertaining to clothes,' physically pertains to something physical, etc. If there isn't, I'm going to make one, probably using one of the words I get from you guys. English has plenty of German/French/Greek/Latin in it, maybe I'll build on one of those words. Or go totally different, using the word from Swahili or Chinese or Guaraní?
