Calling potatoes mud apples from this point on
@sophia Ma'am... please...
@rolaids_guy friend, please, think of the children
@rolaids_guy you are a monster, the poor children *single tear rolls down cheek*
@sophia *leaves bit*
@sophia ye i'll vefinitely do that in french.
All because the English language started out without the word 'fruit'. So it used 'apple' as a generic term.
So translating pre-'fruit' gives 'earth apple' for the French, after we borrowed 'fruit', it becomes 'earth fruit', and we start using apple to mean a specific type of fruit.
Isn't English grand (;*
