Another word I've been thinking about and needs some explanationDOG
: In the early days when the Neanderthals started to domesticate the wolfs and they started to speak their first words, they had no name yet for the new type of wolf. They knew these animals could be very nice and loyal but at the same hand, they could be very dangerous. When one of the Neanderthals saw that one of the animals wanted to launch an attack, he warned the others by saying 'Dangerous Object Going'. Everybody of the group knew that they had to watch out. for thousands of years it remained 'Dangerous Object Going' until an early Einstein (we are still speaking at a time before Jesus was born) said that it would be much easier and faster if you just say 'DOG'.
From that day on, the word dog was born.
You should try and shout 'DOG' to a bystander; look for his reaction. He gets himself ready either to run or to fight.
That is still our imprinted instinct from our days as a Neanderthal.
Another word in a few more days. My imagination flies sky high with this topic. Love it
