What sentient species do we know of that stand three meter* tall?
Those white furry things with four eyes that begin with T... there was one in the Cantina in ANH..
You're thinking of Talz,
@Mistress_Renata - I would also suggest Moroffs. But I think we're all under. 3 metres is really tall. Kaminoans are probably the closest. Hutts if they could stretch their full length into height haha.
Thanks for the suggestions but as
@Kurisan said "I think we're all under. 3 metres" beside the Hutts and maybe the Killiks, most of the suggestions have been more around 2 to 2,3 (maybe 2,5) meters
Who was that Jedi Master in TPM who had the reeeeeeaaaally long neck?
I'm pretty sure you mean Yarael Poof.
@Gamiel Have a look at this thread in Lit: http://boards.theforce.net/threads/what-is-the-tallest-species-in-star-wars.32099303/
And thanks for the replies about "bimaristan" everyone!
@Sith-I-5 I think that your idea about "two maristans" will make it into my fic
@Snocone I'd love to include yours too about a country to the north of Kazakhstan but that will have to wait until I write a fic in a universe where Kazakhstan exists
You could use 'Långtbortistan'* instead of Kazakhstan
* Swedish for Farawaystan
I'm saving that one for another fic
It actually have an Swedish wiki' page https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Långtbortistan
In it I see two English variations on the same theme: Farbakishan and Toofar
So female sharks are larger then male, that's good to know. Do we know of any other notable differences between male and female sharks?
Based on this, I immediately thought of "Abortistan" for if you were visiting the place, and had to cancel in a hurry; especially if your flight was diverted within sight of the airport.
The details can be species-specific, but in general female sharks also have thicker and rougher skin, and male sharks have a pair of claspers beside the pelvic fins which are used for mating.
with the definition of bimaristan, now I'm pretty sure (75 percent) that -stan means place in Arabic.
The wook says male Togorians can get up to 3.0 meters tall.
It does mean "place", but in Persian, not in Arabic. I believe it's also used in Turkish with the same meaning, although that could be because Turkish uses the Persian name of countries (for instance Greece is called Yunanistan in Turkish, meaning "land of the Ionian people" whereas in Arabic it's plain Yunan; I don't know what it's called in Persian).
I'm not sure if "bimaristan" (literally "house of the sick") is still used for hospital in modern Persian. Arabic adopted the word in the Middle Ages, but nowadays it's only used for old buildings that used to be hospitals in times past, not for modern hospitals. So it's a word you'll find on tourist maps of cities such as Jerusalem or Cairo, or that you could have heard about Aleppo when the bimaristan there was destroyed in 2012, which is why I wondered if people might know it.
@Gamiel Phlogs are incredibly tall.
Out of curiousity, if I upload a story on here, am I allowed to upload it onto another site or vice versa?
I hope so
Yes. The only thing is that the story must actually be posted here, you can't just post a link to another site.
Thanks a lot!
@Chyntuck - I have no idea if this Bimaristan is for a Star Wars story or not.
If it is for Star Wars, you could change one letter, and have Bomaristan be where Bomarr Monks come from.
