Sending this to the list for others amusement, but hoping John can answer.


My wife and I were having a conversation this evening and somehow we 
ended up puzzling over the seemingly dramatic differences for the word 
for dog.  Chien, perro, Hund, cane, cachorro, dog.  How did six western 
languages with such close connections end up with six very different 
words for dog?
