Is crevasse different from a chasm?
+2
Level 78
Mar 28, 2018
I think a crevasse is specifically a crack in ice, but I might have made that up.

A crevasse can be a crack in a lot of things, but it is used as the specific term for one in a glacier or other mass of ice.

Yeah, I am inclined to think that chasm should be accepted, too. Crevasse is the better, more fitting answer--and I got it after chasm didn't work--but chasm is not wrong. It is simply more general.

Ah, I had no idea that crevice and crevasse were different things!

I tried many spelling of both crevice and crevasse (but not the correct one for crevasse) then I tried chasm (and some other desperate attempts) I couldnt believe nothing worked.

I studied geography in U.K., 1974-81, no mention of hoodoo. Perhaps it's not a term used over here?

It seems to be a term used in the USA and Canada - it's not one we use over here in Britain.

Well, I'm from Canada and I tried "hat."

Also educated in UK, never heard Hoodoo, thought it must be "Hat" as in Mexican Hat, why not?

I have never heard the term in the USA, I have also never seen a landform like that, so I dunno.

Wikipedia lists the synonyms as tent rock, fairy chimney, and earth pyramid, but hoodoo is the most commonly used. I'm guessing it's not called that in the UK just because they don't seem to exist in many places outside of the southwestern US.

As far as I know the UK have no active volcano(e)s or geysers either ;) they have names for it though

They're called "tent rocks" usually. Hoodoo is an American term.

I like the French term for 'hoodoos'......demoiselles coiffées ("ladies with hairdos").
+1
Level 81
Mar 30, 2018
I call them "cheminées de fées". By the way, they have other names in English too, I know the initial is given, but maybe fairy chimney and earth pyramid could be accepted.

You can also translate it as 'young ladies with fancy hairdos' :)

Yes, It's indeed Bangladesh. Is the Ganges Sundarban Delta. The picture also has a little bit of India and Myanmar.

I think QM hoodooed us on that last one. Never heard of it.

Only hoodoo I ever heard of was the one in "Born on the Bayou" by Creedence Clearwater Revival...the context doesn't suggest it's an odd looking geological formation that I've never heard of in my adult life. The fact that the representation appears to be a drawing makes me suspicious.
