Let’s Talk About Words


I heard a radio program on Saturday that really made me stop and think about how some words come about…like the following:

How did a head be come a noggin…

A breast become a boob…

An abdomen become a belly…

A stomach become a gut…

A hand become a paw…

Buttocks become a bum…

Navel become a belly button…

A mouth become a yap…

An elbow become a funny bone…

The little finger become a pinky…

A nose become a schnoz…

I’ll call the end of this a wrap andĀ could probably think of many more examples but I’m sure you get the gist…got some words you’d like to talk about?
