The Japanese language doesn't make the distinction, which goes both
ways.  You've heard of the famous Inuit languages with scores of words
for "snow", I suppose?  English doesn't have that many. :-)  I'm sure
there are plenty of examples in Japanese, too, but I can't think of
any striking ones off-hand.

Kome, yone, ine, meshi, gohan, ii, uruchi, urishine, raisu...
