The really ridiculous thing about this myth is that there is no such thing as "the Eskimo language', there are in fact a wide variety of tongues used by the native population in Alaska.



Moreover even if it were true their language be no different than English which has many different words for snow. Try watching a weather broadcast sometime and see how many ways there are describing something as simple as a snowfall.
