: Chris, interesting points you've made regarding the word "Eskimo." In this case, you have a non-Inuit word which was spoken intently to offend Inuits (those Algonquians again!) ... and in time, has been accepted by some whom it was originally meant to deride.
: Is this the other side of the linguistic coin?
Yes, Elaine. I do believe so.
