Word of the Day: dog

Posted by

Dogs are furry, lovable creatures that we pamper with affection. But it’s a mystery why we call them dogs. The logical term is canine, from the Latin word for dog. Originally, the English word was hund, borrowing from German. It’s tough to say what prompted the change. English preserves its earlier word in hound, which refers specifically to a hunting dog, and to the Germanic breed Dachshund.
