Wow so the Dutch verb for ‘to hoard’ is ‘hamsteren’ i.e. ‘to hamster’

well maybe that’s why hamsters are called hamsters?? because that is what they do??

Of course it’s what they do, but it’s the other way around - the verb comes from the noun, which itself comes (apparently) from Old High German ‘hamustro’ which meant some sort of similar rodent :o and yeah the verb hamsteren then comes from the noun, because it makes sense :P … Also I should clear up that ‘to hamster’ isn’t actually a verb in English, and from the reblogs I’ve had, hamsteren (or similar) only exists in Dutch and other germanic languages (except English), whereas hamster or similar is the noun for hamster in many more languages, so it seems obvious that the verb is from the noun and not otherwise :o

Well, it isn’t that weird because hamsters collect food in their cheeks.

They’re even advertisements by the Albert Heijn, a supermarkt chain, where they have hamsters as a main mascotte.

I wasn’t saying it was weird, ik vond het gewoon geweldig :) and yeah I’ve heard about Albert Heijn using it as their mascot, although I never actually saw it while I was in Nederland :o I’ll have to seek it out next time!

The Australian language Ngan’gityemerri is said to have fifteen different genders, which include, among others, masculine human, feminine human, canine, non-canine animals, vegetables, drinks, and two different genders for spears (depending on size and material).

The other Erasmus students I’ve made friends with so far are mostly German (one Italian guy and a Korean girl too - I’m one of only two English people here and the other guy (who incidentally comes from my university) lives in private accommodation so we don’t see him that often), and whenever we’re together and they have to say something in English (a film title or cross-translating or whatever) they hesitate and look at me like “please don’t judge my accent/pronunciation” and speak in that questioning tone uncertain language learners always do and it’s adorable and hilarious

At first I thought the first two portraits were of Picasso at the age of fourteen and I was so confused
