Bar 1 or 2 rounds, Liam put in a very good performance with some good word spots. Suspect it will have been worth the flight as I can see him staying for a few more games....

Susie tells us about the origins of phrases involving the word "dog".

Interestingly, the Mbabaram word for "dog" is "dog", but the etymology is totally different. How anyone knows that the etymology is totally different when nobody seems to know the etymology of English "dog", I'm not sure.

And apparently it's "dog" in Volapük as well. But Wiktionary makes no comment on the etymology of this.
