Are there any languages or dialects not distinguishing between taste and smell?

Possible duplicate of this older and much more general question.

  • English for one subsumes smell under taste, insofar taste is mostly perceived by the nose, except for the four or five basic tastes sour, salt, sweet, bitter (and umami/meat), as the common knowledge goes. – vectory Nov 4 '19 at 6:08
  • @vectory: Languages or dialects having only one word for both these senses. – Lucian Nov 4 '19 at 6:13
