@Dave: I take hair to be an image for something that does not weight a lot physically (the three psychological capacities quoted) or does not change the looks of your head, or distinguish you at first sight.

comment Is Japanese really an agglutinative language?
@hippietrail: Concerning Hungarian, the use of "case" in Hungarian grammar could be challenged as Boaz said because the inflexion is not aligned on epithets, except in minor situations, but it is not completely wrong and has been internalized by speakers. Hungarian has changed a lot during the last nine centuries, notably verb grammar, and has been heavily influenced by latin, german, slavic languages and turkish. Speaking of Georgian: really another ball game altogether. The agglutinate aspects are just one part of it. Good luck to you.
