Silbentrennung White el·e·phant
Türkische aussprache hwayt elıfınt
/ˈhwīt ˈeləfənt/ /ˈhwaɪt ˈɛləfənt/
Etymologie () In Siam elephants were working animals. However, white (albino) elephants were considered sacred and therefore were not to be put to work. The owner was then left to feed the elephant but could get no work from it. It is said that the King of Siam used to make a present of a white elephant to courtiers he wanted to ruin.
