My friend Zain has a nice post about the language of "hate" and how it really doesn't exist in the Uzbek language. Even if it did, we never heard it in our 1 1/2 years living and working in the country.
"...for a people who live in one of the most corrupt and difficult societies in the world, they don't really say "i hate". now, this is just my experience, but i spoke with as many Uzbeks as the next person, and i never heard an Uzbek express himself as having hatred toward another person or thing. the most anyone would say - if you could get them to say it - was that they disliked not having jobs, or that gas was expensive; but they wouldn't even say they disliked those things. Uzbeks said it more matter-of-factly: ish yoq, benzin qummat, pul kam; no work, gas expensive, money little."
