Hi Tina,


Those are valid questions. Thank you!๐Ÿ‘


I am not sure if there is a definite answer but what I think is

that the names of things have developed over many thousands of years

and if it wasn't for you, nobody would even think about them anymore. Also,

it depends on what language you think was their first. Take your example of

the "Speiseรถl": you assume that the English name "cooking oil" was there first

and it should be translated into German accordingly,

but what if the German word came first? Why do the English call it "cooking oil"?๐Ÿ˜‰


If you have any further questions, please let us know.


Kind regards,

Reinhard

Why is BEEF not Kuh Fleisch if PORK is Schweine Fleisch?


Also, why isn't COOKING OIL "Kochen ร–l"?


thank you!
