Monique you are right, and Durzi can also mean a person who has two official residences: one in Dubai and one in Jersey.

Oh! This word is definitely Akkadian. It comes from the Babylonian empire... 

It means "the one who opens the path to the land of the waters" 

 

Ur is a city close to the Euphrates, and it was called Ur due to it. People dont know it but my own language comes from the Acadian, coming at the same time from the Babylonian language... and that is why the Basque language is that close to many languages from the pre-Iberian languages. "UR" in Basque means "water" and that is why Ur is called Ur, due to the water of Euphrates that was life for them...

Zimmer means walker, and it is proto-German also, coming from the old Hebrew languages (from the Ashkenazis - Ashkenaz is the first son of Gomer, or grandson of Noah - in Asirian Akūza

The "D" at the beginning comes from "Daleth" meaning "the door, or "Delta" in ancient Greek), in other words, "the beginning or opening to something"

Tom is a real "durzi". He is constantly asking stupid questions and then blushes and says "der.. I guess I should have known that." when he gets the obvious answer.  I mean he is a REAl(!) DURZI, he often does mindless things like putting salt in his coffee thinking it is sugar.
 
Durzi (slang): a person or animal that is prone to doing foolish things because they arent really thinking about what they or doing or saying. They usually respond to these situations with a "der/duh/doh" comment or expression when they discover their scatterbrainedness. Their friends are often heard telling them "time to turn on your brain you durzi"

It describes a politician when they state the obvious. They are being "durzi" because everybody just says, "DUR! We know!"

The Durzi (noun, plural) are a rugged, hardy  breed of cattle which roam the Himalayas. In fact, a Durzum was the first creature to summit (oh, I do hate this usage of summit as a verb, but thats what people say!) Mount Everest. Like the Yeti, they are rarely spotted and we dont know much about them. We do know that if a Durzum meets a Yetum, it is the Yetum who turns and runs.

Ok Ok Monique, I will be the yetum, but I have to tell you that I am a Super-Yetum. Last year, I had a little contretemps with Godzilla and well, you havent seen him for a while, have you?
