@hntooter @kirch interesting article, thanks for sharing! :)
Makes me wonder what the shared linguistic root is for / , as they seem very similar.

Maybe @allthingslinguistic knows?

@kirch thanks! As I'd read the article before sleep, I'd forgotten to actually look it up myself.
(The 'taptoe' was interesting as well; I'm Dutch, and I never realised its connection to closing the taps).
