"Squirrel"

In Languages Around The Globe

By Molly Kalafut

Why? Because I Can! *Mwahahaha*

Gray squirrels were always my favorite wildlife when growing up.  Languages are also an interest of mine, so a number of years ago I started collecting different translations of the word "squirrel".  It is interesting to note the similarities between some of the words.  For example, Norwegian is "ekorn", Swedish is "ekorre", Dutch is "egern" and French is "ecureuil".  Similarly, Latvian is "vevere" and Slovakian is "vevericka".
