    Hello everyone!

    I'd like to know how to say papagaio, a term used in Brazil, and bažant, used in the Czech Republic, to refer to bowls for male patients who cannot move much to pee in in as many languages as possible.

    Both bažant and papagaio are birds, by the way. The former means pheasant and the latter parrot.

    How nice! We Finns call it sorsa which means "duck (species)" or "mallard".

    In Russian it is утка /utka/ - duck.
    Weird how these terms are related to birds...

    ðo'çio nik'tos, lit. "vessel of night"
    «Πάπια» (vernacular)
    'papça feminine noun, lit. "duck"

    Americans call it a portable urinal, auto john, or a duck.

    I can only imagine very prosaic words in Dutch : "nachtfles", night bottle, or "pisfles", peeing bottle, ... No fauna in our hospitals, I am afraid.

    There's no slang term in Esperanto, as far as I know. It's either a litpelvo or a noktovazo.
