01 May Bábushka
Posted at 17:29h in Glossary 0 Comments
In Russian, a grandmother (informal, corresponding to English Grandma or Granny.)
Also generic for describing or addressing an older woman. The English babushka, with the stress on the second syllable, means ‘head kerchief’ because older women typically covered their heads with kerchiefs.
