The Only Bulgarian Word Beginning With Er Golyam

Here’s a bit of trivia for your next cocktail party: there is only one word in the Bulgarian language that begins with er golyam (ъ). Behold ъгъл!

"ъгъл" (rendered in PT Sans)
“ъгъл” (rendered in PT Sans)

It means “corner” and sounds something like “uh-gul.” Er golyam is otherwise very common and appears in the name of the country itself, for example: България (Bulgaria).
