What exactly mean the word "sas"? Peak? Peak with any special shape? Is it tipical from any region in particular? It sounds nice!
Well it's Ladinian, the language spoken in the heart of the Dolomites. In Italian it would be Sasso, like Sasso delle Dodici instead of Sas de la Dodesc. On the other hand nobody really knows how to spell it correctly - you'll find Sas, Sass and Sasso on one map.
Have to find out what Sasso means in Italian - the German word would be Kofel but I'm not sure I really know what it means since it is applied to mountains of every shape.
Thanks a lot, really interesting! In North Spain, arround the area I am from there are several words that means "peak": pico, peña, torre, cueto, monte, morra, tabla... and maybe I´m forgetting some of then.
Variety it´s good, thanks again.
I'm not sure, it's just my 'gut feeling', but looks most probable to me that sasso would mean a 'stone, rock'. Hm, I don't hnow...
sas is a dialectal form of sasso that means stone, in Ladin countries you can find a lot of mountains named Sas or Sasso the most famous is Sassolungo (Langkopfel)
The answer is so obvious I feel a little ashamed that I didn't think of it. Btw: it's Langkofel - which was the Kofel I had in mind when trying to translate Sasso to German.
