This question has come up in the Great Eskimo Snow Debate.
Oh, come to think of it, can you tell us more about the G E S D ? And why they care about word puzzles? And maybe, if it isn't intruding, how you come to be involved :-)

G E S D
I'm involved only as a disinterested spectator. The question comes up as side effect of the fact that Inuktitut, and other related languages are polysynthetic (or whatever they're calling it these days) so do all the various words based on, e.g.,aput, i.e., 'snow (on ground)' aput (aput sisurtuq = avalanche)
'slush (on ground)' aput masannartuq , count as different words?
Maybe we should ask the bookkeeper.
