Etymology[edit | edit source]
Semantic space[edit | edit source]
It is sometimes used to refer to south, as in ma Amelika seli ("South America"). This is somewhat biased towards the Northern Hemisphere, where going south leads closer to the warmer equator. However, it is reversed in the Southern Hemisphere, where going south leads further away from it. This usage was first attested in 2007.
