En réponse à Keith Gaughan <[log in to unmask]>: > > Aardvark is Dutch for `ground pig', isn't it? > Kind of yes. "Kind of" only because "pig" in Dutch is normally "varken". "vark" is not seen as a single word. But "aard" does mean "ground" (and also "nature", as in "the human nature" :)) . The Dutch are specialists of double-meaning words).
